Flood alleviation work was carried out in our area recently, under the supervision of Northumbrian Water, by Lumsden and Carroll.
For the duration of this work, over a few months, a website was set up so that those of us who wished to follow the progress had the opportunity to do so. It was excellent, and included a few photographs each week.
It would be a very good public relations exercise if our council did the same for the regeneration work.
Keeping people informed is essential to allay suspicion and prevent unnecessary rumours growing.
