Repairs to historic wall welcomed

Liberal Democrat Councillors in Whickham, Gateshead, have welcomed repairs to an historic wall that had been left crumbling for years.

Councillor Peter Maughan had raised concerns about the damage to the stone wall around the former Dunston Hill Hospital, on Whickham Highway.

He had pressed the company developing the Dunston Hill site for housing to repair the wall which is seen by thousands of local residents every day.

“The wall was a mess with crumbling stonework and in some cases complete stones had been removed and not replaced,” said Peter.

“But at long last, the developers have repaired the wall and it is now in a much improved condition.”

What about the historic wall along Ravensworth Terrace in Dunston, no longer there tore down so a property developer could build another block of flats. The last thing that trouble area needed, it needs family houses/homes built not more flats. A case of profit before people if ever there was one. Thats NEW Labour and their rich friends for you.

What about the very long historic wall that used to run along Askew road? we still don`t know the full story of that??? what a MESS Gateshead is in. You reap what you sow, you vote NEW Labour you get a nightmare.
