Local Plan

Householder telephone survey

Consultants have been commissioned by the Council to undertake a Town and District Centre Use Needs study.

As part of this commission, NEMS Market Research is undertaking a telephone survey of 1,000 households. They are asking local residents about their shopping patterns and how they think the Borough as a retail destination could be improved.

If you have any queries about this then please contact Matt Clifford on 0191 424 7594 or e-mail

The Local Plan

Our ambition is for South Tyneside to be an outstanding place to live, invest and bring up families.

To help deliver this we are preparing a new Local Plan for South Tyneside, which will set the planning policy basis for assessing all planning applications and development proposals in the Borough.
