Development of the Draft Neighbourhood Plan
Members of the Forum have been working on the final draft of the neighbourhood plan which will soon be shared with all residents. We thought it would be nice to share photos which support the themes of the plan.
If you have any interesting photos you’d like to share with us please get in touch.
Before getting into the detail, here’s an opportunity to reflect on the history that makes East Boldon that it is. Please share any other photos you have that you’re happy for us to use.
