Byker Village TARA
Byker Village Tenants and Residents Association meet on the third Tuesday of every month at Spires Lane hobby room.
The group are very proactive and work closely with Byker Community Trust and the Police to make their area of the estate a clean and safe place to live. Over the last year, issues resolved as a result of the committee are:
- Cutting down of bushes in Felton Walk resulting in the removal of anti-social behaviour away from the area
- Lobbying of the Council and Byker Community Trust on environmental and waste issues
- Relocation of bins at St Lawrence’s Church
- Community litter picks
- Weekly events in partnership with Kids Kabin and activities for the summer
The group have recently introduced a ‘Tracker’ which helps them hold people to account, make sure issues are resolved and that meetings run smoothly.
