Land sale causes concern.

Land earmarked for a new housing estate has gone on the market for pounds 1.6m in Bardon Mill, near Hexham, amid concerns from villagers.

The three-acre site at Falcon Grange has planning permission for 19 executive and family homes.

But resident Evelyn Cook, who has lived in Bardon Mill for 12 years, said local people would have concerns about any development.

She said: "People are worried that this will just lead to ribbon development, that all the little villages here will just end up running into each other.

"Then, there are concerns about the infrastructure here.

"We just don't have the local services to cope with any more houses."
