- To seek diversification in employment opportunities, with emphasis on Alnwick’s unique qualities to attract clean, non-location specific industries.
- To protect and emphasise the strengths of the town centre as a shopping and social centre.
- To understand that Alnwick’s architectural and social heritage is essential to its prosperity and needs to be cared for accordingly.
- To encourage local authorities to adopt and support proposals produced by the team.
- To identify and source necessary capital and revenue funding.
The Alnwick Town Team has the following members – Northumberland County Council; Alnwick Town Council; Alnwick Chamber of Trade; Market Licensee; Alnwick Civic Society; The Alnwick Garden; Alnwick in Bloom and up to 3 representatives from community groups in Alnwick.
