Many residents of Whickham have signed petitions or completed our surveys from Lib Dem councillors about parking in the St Mary’s Green car park.
The surveys were used to compile a 49 page report which was sent to Nick Clennet, Head of Transport and Highways at Gateshead Council.
This was followed up with a meeting attended by Nick Clennet and Councillors Peter Craig and Chris Ord who were there to represent residents’ views. Discussions went very well; highways officers were impressed by the quality of the comments made by residents.
Councillors are hoping to receive a copy of the Cabinet Report very soon and will keep residents up to date with progress.
