Draft Plan Now Published

After a lot of effort by a lot of people, including those who have attended previous consultation events the draft of the Neighbourhood Plan has now been produced and we need your views!

Please take the time to read the full draft plan which is available by following this link and leave your comments using this short survey. Your comments are very important as this is a community driven plan which needs to be supported by those who live and work in the forum area.

July 2020 e-Newsletter

Although we have not been able to meet face to face, officers of the Forum have been beavering away on the Neighbourhood Plan (NP). We are at a crucial stage in the NP process. We wanted to let you know where we are up to and what we have done. The Forum continues to make formal responses, on behalf of members, about key issues that impact on village life, some of which are listed below.

Working with staff and children at East Boldon Junior School

To make young members of the East Boldon Neighbourhood Forum area aware of the work of the Forum, a project was planned and completed between December 2018 and March 2019. The aim of the project was to engage pupils at East Boldon Junior School in the consultation process, covering aspects of village life and seeking opinions of young members of the community through a programme of interactive workshops.
