Lifestyle resort good for area; Views of the North.

THE site of Eden Project in Cornwall was once a huge chalk surface mine, the whole of its structure being fitted into the area from where the chalk was extracted, making it one of the best visitor attractions in the country.

The leisure complex Active Lifestyle Resort, which is planned near Widdrington in Northumberland, could do the same for this area, which has lost its deep mining jobs, the Alcan smelter plant, upgraded access roads, car parking facilities and the Widdrington train station.

This project is what is needed to rejuvenate a depressed area and provide new jobs in this part of Northumberland. BILL HARRIS, Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Northumberland
