East Boldon Neighbourhood Forum
Welcome to our website!
The Forum exists to produce a Neighbourhood Plan which represents a view of the future for the Village and we need your help! If you live or work in the East Boldon Forum area then you are welcome to join the Forum. Please get in touch with us.
Although our regular monthly meetings have been suspended since March as a result of the lockdown we have continued to work in the background towards the development of our draft neighbourhood plan. Please see below or click here for more information.
The Forum has been active since 2016. We have created a visual timeline to show the progress which has been achieved since the idea of a Neighbourhood Forum for East Boldon was first suggested in November 2016. Please click to see more details.
We will add more information and links to support each of the items on the timeline as they become available.
Neighbourhood Forums have a legal standing and allow residents to influence (but not prevent) future development in their area. The East Boldon Neighbourhood Forum was designated by South Tyneside Council in January 2018. Since then, the Forum has been working on the development of a neighbourhood plan which is expected to be available later in 2020.
During August 2019 Forum members provided a detailed response to the South Tyneside Council’s latest draft of their Local Plan. Please look here for more information and feel free to leave a comment to let us know your views.
