Safer Metros. Safer Buses. Safer Parks.
In my last newsletter, I updated you on the findings of my Safer Streets survey - where you told me what makes you feel uncomfortable or even frightened when out and about wherever you live, work or visit across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear. I've listened.
And, in response to these findings, I am finally able to share the good news that we have been successful in our bid for Safer Streets Funding.
This means, I am going to be making £800,000 worth of investment in our region. Investment that will rethink public safety. CCTV, improved lighting, a new reporting app, educational campaigns - these are just some of solutions that you said would make you feel safer.
I'm excited by this. I truly believe we can improve the lives and safety of people in the North East and I look forward to updating you with our progress over the coming months.
