As a council, we continue to gather feedback from our communities through our Let's Talk Sunderland campaign. We want to directly involve our residents and communities in making Sunderland a great place to live with the power to influence matters that affect them.
Last year we held conversations with residents to inform neighbourhood investment moving forward. We also asked residents to share their views via a survey and also with specialist groups and schools. We have now collated the feedback and we are holding further conversations in your area and we would like you to get involved. You can join a conversation in your area at the following times and locations:
West - Tuesday 4 February, 4.00pm to 6.00pm, Farringdon Youth and Community Centre, Allendale Road
Washington - Thursday 6 February, 4.30pm to 7.00pm, Washington Millennium Centre, Concord
Coalfield - Thursday 6 February, 5.30pm to 7.30pm, Bethany Centre, Houghton le Spring
East - Monday 3 February, 5.30pm to 7.30pm, Bethany City Church, Bede Tower, Ashbrooke, Sunderland
North - Tuesday 11 February, 4.00pm to 6.00pm, Hylton Castle, Castletown, Sunderland
We will use local views to shape neighbourhoods across the city through the production of individual Neighbourhood Investment Plans for Sunderland's five areas - East, West, North, Coalfields and Washington - as well as reviewing how services are delivered across our communities, to ensure they are fit for purpose and efficient. Your views will feed directly into these plans.
The Neighbourhood Investment Plans will be launched in the spring 2020. The plans will be tracked and regular progress updates will be shared.
Please continue to share your views, either via the survey link below or by attending your local area conversation.
