In developing the draft Neighbourhood plan members of the Forum have been collating evidence to support the policies outlined in the plan. These will be shared on this page as they become available.

Please take some time to review the documents and share any comments you may have via the contact page.

The Community Character Statement and the two companion Architectural Survey documents support the Built & Historic Environment Background Paper.

These documents provide a summary of the history, development, character & identity of East Boldon village, with particular emphasis on the old village core and the Conservation Area. They highlight why the residents and people who work in the village value it’s atmosphere, distinctiveness and community spirit.

The documents identify the context against which any new development in the village must be considered.
