Liaising with our MPs

Submitted by Katsdekker

Over the last week, we have been busy replying to communications from our MPs Catherine McKinnell and Chi Onwurah.

- We’ve responded to Chi who had facilitated a reply from Barry Rowland, chief executive of Newcastle City Council

- Catherine, our most prolific communicant, blogged about the Summer of Cycling and we asked whether it was possible to clarify with the Minister the much-mentioned National Cycle Stakeholder Forum, its terms of references, makeup and transparency

We’ve also recently written to Barry Rowland, chief executive of Newcastle City Council, how he sees the excellent 1Plan implemented – NewcastleGateshead’s economic and spatial strategy. Progress on 1Plan delivery appears slow and much is unclear.
