Hundreds of residents have been shown key regeneration proposals for Wallsend.

North Tyneside Council held an information event to showcase the plans for the north bank of the Tyne, including the former Swan Hunter shipyard site, and the town centre.

Hundreds of residents and businesses took the opportunity to view the plans and talk to key officers at the event, held at The Memorial Hall.

Also in attendance were officials from Kier Property which was recently named as the development partner to regenerate the old shipyard.

The company is actively marketing the 34-acre site, which is designated as part of the North Eastern Low Carbon Enterprise Zone.
