What we've done to engage people
Over the last 12 months we have worked with residents to identify the main issues that Streets for People should address. This included an online consultation for each of the areas, public meetings, a design workshop, and direct communication with residents. People told us they wanted new green spaces, better pavements, safer junctions and renovated streets that work better for everyone.
Groups of residents in each of the three areas then met to discuss how to turn these ideas into plans. Working with urban designers and Newcastle City Council, plans have been drawn up that propose several important changes in each of these areas. We now need to gather feedback on these plans from people living in these areas and make any necessary changes to the plans before implementing them.
The Streets for People project is a collaboration between Newcastle City Council and residents in three areas of Newcastle upon Tyne. The project is funded by a grant obtained from the Department for Transport’s Cycle City Ambition Fund.
