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.
We've been holding conversations with residents across 2019 and 2020 to inform neighbourhood investment moving forward. People have also shared their views through an ongoing survey, as well as meeting up with specialist groups and schools.
Your views will help create individual Neighbourhood Investment Plans for each of Sunderland's five areas - East, West, North, Coalfield and Washington. The plans will not only decide how money is spent, but also review how services are delivered across our communities, and ensure they are fit for purpose and efficient.
The Neighbourhood Investment Plans will be launched in Spring 2020. The plans will be tracked, and regular progress updates will be shared.
Please continue to share your views via the survey link below:
More than 60 percent of Sunderland residents said they would be willing to work together in their communities and neighbourhoods, if you would like to get involved and volunteer, why not check out the volunteering opportunities across Sunderland. We would love to hear from you.
