What you said

We conducted Our South Tyneside Conversation between October 10 and December 2, 2022 to inform the development of our masterplan.

It took place online, on our streets and at drop-in sessions at venues including The Word, South Shields Town Hall and Ocean Road Community Centre.

We encouraged people to take part in our conversation through extensive social and digital advertising, a door-to-door mail-out, bus advertising, on street teams, huge hoardings around the town, local media and our council website and newsletter.

We asked for your opinions on our thoughts for the town.

There was plenty of discussion.

Almost 1300 people between the ages of 12 and 75 who live, work and play in South Tyneside took the opportunity to complete a survey.

Read our findings below and see how they will help shape your town.
