The Elders Council and Newcastle City Council have organised a special session to give older people the opportunity to comment on the Development and Allocations Plan. The Plan sets out the key policies which will be applied to the development of the city. Planning decisions are made based on these policies, so it's important that older people in the city have an opportunity to have a say.
If you would like to participate in this session, please book a place by contacting [email protected] or call 0191 208 2701.
