A Statement by Wylam Parish Council concerning land slippage affecting an area of riverside land south of Wylam Nurseries and east of Stephenson Terrace.

At its meeting on 12th July 2021 the Parish Council was updated on the outcomes of a joint meeting held on 8th July with officers from Northumberland County Council, Tom Martin of Wylam Nurseries and County Councillor Holly Waddell. The meeting provided a welcome opportunity for all parties to clearly state their position on the matter and to discuss next steps.

A number of key outcomes were agreed at the meeting and these are being actioned with a view to a further meeting being arranged as soon as possible.

The Parish Council recognises the seriousness of this issue, continues to liaise with its Insurer and will continue to work collaboratively with all parties towards a resolution of this matter.
