Here is a post from today to give you a flavour of things:
Take Pride in Prudhoe (2012)
I anticipate that someone in favour of the development will say as the report says, the new surge tank will solve the problem. Firstly I think I am right in saying that such features built on Castlefields itself have had their own problems. Secondly the heat of my criticism would be removed by the county putting up the Highway's Engineer who spoke last November and having him say "that in his professional judgement against which he would stake his reputation that the present plan for the new development will either improve Prudhoe's drainage or not change it in any regard". If the man is happy to put that on record the strength of anyone's concern about drainage and the development is reduced.
