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.

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 February please look out for our latest newsletter which will be delivered to all properties in the Forum area. If you know of anyone who doesn’t have access to the internet please encourage them to take a look at the newsletter.

We held our most recent monthly meeting in the Scout Hut on 16 March 2020. Details of future meetings will be posted here once Government restrictions have been lifted.
