Dear Lisa

With a membership of over 1,300 businesses in North Tyneside we would expect there to be a range of views to the Tyne Estuary Stakeholder Consultation however, given the importance of the topic that we make a formal response so that the views of the lead support organisation for the business community in North Tyneside are recorded and we would like to make the following points re the opportunities to create an environmentally and economically vibrant Tyne Estuary.

  • The enhancement opportunities which are of interest to the North Tyneside Business Forum are those which lie within the North Tyneside borough boundaries.
  • We recognise there are a large number of sites within the Tyne Estuary which have been identified and we do not wish to comment on all of these individually except that in general we support initiatives which promote and encourage economic growth and employment.
  • We have passed the opportunity to take part in consolation to the Chambers for Wallsend and North Shields, who may make comment on specific areas identified.
  • The North Tyneside Business Forum is committed to working with all appropriate organisations that help to make North Tyneside a great place to live, work and visit and we believe that your work will be an important part in helping to achieve this.

We would be grateful if you would keep us updated on this important work and when the consultation has been completed and the necessary report has been written it would be good to arrange a meeting to discuss the content and to establish how best to support this important work.

I trust that the above is in order any questions please call.

Kind Regards
David W Bavaird,
Chair of North Tyneside Business Forum
