Decent Neighbourhood Standards are our guarantee that we will play our part in making sure everyone lives in a clean, green and safe place, with decent access to services where local needs are met. Decent Neighbourhood Standards are about identifying areas of our city where there is greatest need for investment and support. We need to be clear that providing decent neighbourhoods will not solely depend on the work of the Council -
We’ve done an assessment for every ward in the city based on seven standards. These are based on statistical data and local people’s views taken from the resident’s survey. The baseline assessment of these for your ward is available here ( 41.85kb pdf )
If you would like to know more about the Decent Neighbourhood Standards, or would like to get involved in contributing toward them, please contact your Communities Facilitator, Paul Whiston at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 0191 2777997 or email Paul Marshall, email@example.com
Details on the technical process and data sources that support the Decent Neighbourhood Standards Baseline Assessments can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

Your local Councillors are keen to improve access to Kenton Dene and for local people to use the Dene for more activities. We are looking at whether we can make improvements to the Dene by creating new footpaths and cycle ways as well as creating wild flower meadows and wet land planting. If you would be interested in getting involved in a 'Friend of Kenton Dene' group to help with this work please contact Paul Whiston, Communities Facilitator
