Storm Support

Information and support for those affected by Storms.

Storms Dudley and Eunice

Last updated on 17 Feb 22

Following Storm Dudley and ahead of Storm Eunice, we are asking people to think about their plans when visiting areas of Northumberland.

Residents and visitors’ safety is extremely important, and we are asking that you consider the following before you make plans:
  • Is it safe to travel?
  • Have you checked local websites for updated information as to whether the area you plan to visit is open and safe to do so?
  • Do you intend to visit hills, water or woodland – all areas which could become extremely dangerous during a storm?
Northumberland is very much open but some of the county’s wooded areas are still affected by previous storm damage so please ensure every care is taken before making a visit.

For the latest storm updates and service interruptions, please follow our Northumberland Alerts online here, or on our dedicated Twitter and Facebook social media channels.

Berwick Partnership - Your Views on School Organisation

Effective: 23 May 2022 to 12 Aug 2022

Northumberland County Council has committed £39.9m towards the replacement and refurbishment of school buildings in the Berwick Partnership. However, before carrying out the works to school buildings, the Council needs to know that it is investing in a school structure that will deliver consistently good outcomes for all children and young people and that it is sustainable now and for the future generations to come.
