Morpeth shopping development
The development includes shops, houses and a cinema
Residents in Northumberland are about to be shown ambitious plans for a multi-million pound shopping and housing scheme for Morpeth.

The 60m development is named Collingwood Place, in honour of former resident Admiral Lord Collingwood.

It will cover the Back Riggs and Sanderson Arcade and includes shops, apartments, a cinema and a car park.

The plans will be on display in a marquee in the town's market place throughout Saturday.

A six-foot high model of the proposed scheme will be on show.

Representatives from the development company, Austin Trinity, will also be on hand to answer questions.

Mike Birchall, from Austin Trinity Developments, said: "The public will have an opportunity to see the proposed plans at first hand prior to us submitting a planning application.

"The time is right to now unveil details of what we see as the largest regeneration project in Morpeth for years."
