Issue 6 - June 1972
Remember Mrs Neary - the one person whose house still stands in the way of Newcastle's motorway development plans?

Her house is now surrounded by deep excavations, although the Fire Department has insisted that her access road remains open.

The latest news is that the Council have now got a writ for compulsory purchase of her house that will come into effect if accepted by the Planning Committee (Thursday June 18th) in 14 days.

She is still not giving in, and intends to bar herself in with a few friends - others it is hoped will remain outside.

Anyone interested in helping phone Alan Brown (SOC'EM) at Newcastle 81925.
