Welcome to the Whitley Bay 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Whitley Bay as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Whitley Bay with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers
Lord Lennie of Longsands was a recent visitor to Whitley Bay Big Local. He met our Chair, Big Local Rep and 2 workers to discuss the role of Big Local in helping improve the town for residents and visitors ahead of this discussion on The Future of Seaside Towns.
