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
Whitley Bay Big Local has a new 3 year plan for the period 2019-2022. The draft plan was developed following a range of community consultation events and methods - referenced in the plan document. We underwent a review with a representative of Local Trust and received some very positive feedback. Themes - we will continue to focus on 'environment' and 'people' themes but also have a new piece of work that focuses on 'Investing in a Community Building'. More on that in another post soon...
