During 2016/17 every Council Ward in the city will be holding an annual event to agree local priorities for the year which replaces the Ward Committee meetings held in the past. Click on 'show more' to take part.
The annual Ward Priority Setting meeting, which will be led by local Ward Councillors on the 23rd November at Jesmond Library, will give local residents, groups and agencies an opportunity to identify priorities and discuss ways in which they might be delivered.

To help us decide whether to have a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) in Newcastle, and what behaviours it would be used to regulate, we would appreciate it if you could complete the following questionnaire. Click on 'show more' to take part.
Newcastle City Council faces complex challenges around anti-social behaviour and a number of issues have been raised by the public and businesses that need to be addressed. The council wants to ensure that the city remains a great place to live, work and visit. To help us achieve this, we want to put measures in place to deter anti-social behaviour whilst continuing to ensure that appropriate support is in place to protect some of the most vulnerable people in our city.
Public Space Protection Orders (‘PSPOs’) were created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, Chapter 2, Part 4 which came into force on 20 October 2014. They can be used to regulate activities in identified public places that can have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality. They are designed to ensure that the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour. Further information can be found in the Background Information document attached to this consultation:
Please give us your views by taking part in the survey. The results will be made available on our website: Newcastle City Council.
