Residents living in West Shields, Cleadon and East Shields areas can find out what is happening in their neighbourhoods when their local Community Area Forum meets this week.
At the meeting on Thursday (6 December), Forum members will receive an update from the Council and its community safety partners about their work across the area and South Tyneside Homes will outline their latest housing and area management activity.
The Forum will also hear how CAF funded environmental and housing schemes are benefitting local communities.
Councillor Olive Punchion, Chairman of the Forum, said: "Our Forum meetings are specifically for local communities and give local residents an opportunity to find out more about matters affecting their area.
"We discuss a wide range of issues, from community safety to housing. I would encourage residents to come along and join us."
The meeting will be held on Thursday 6 December, at 10am, at Cleadon Methodist Church Hall in Sunderland Road, Cleadon.
