Hexham MP supports vision for Northumberland’s £10.5 million Landscape Discovery Centre

Hexham MP Guy Opperman has given his support to p for Landscape Discovery Centre and Youth hostel in Northumberland's National Park.

The Discovery Centre is set to create up to 156 new jobs when it opens in 2016 and attract up to 120,000 visitors a year. A recent Economic Impact study predicted that the creation of the site would also contribute up to £3.35 million to the local economy in its first year alone.

Mr Opperman this week met with representatives at the site in Once Brewed to voice his support of the project, dubbing it a "...truly exciting project that will really help put Northumberland on the map."
