Consultation continues on strategy for Conservation Area

Drop-in events are being held as part of the ongoing consultation over Tynemouth Village Conservation Area.

Consultation is taking place to gather community views on a document guiding the future of the conservation area.

Once completed, the strategy will be adopted by the authority and used as guidance when making planning decisions.

And those involved would like to hear the views of the wider community to help shape the final document.
