We secured ‘Our Place’ funding to work with the community of the Byker Old Town area of Newcastle. As a result of our work, a further tranche of funding was secured that is being taken forward by Your Homes Newcastle. They are helping the community develop an action plan to improve the area. Project ideas include play areas, improved gardens, tenancy enforcement and training for local young people.
Using previous consultation and engagement as our starting point, we consulted members of the public to form a plan of actions to tackle the priorities. This work is moving forward with support from the local authority and Your Homes Newcastle.
