Have Your Say, Complete our Survey
We have recently launched our neighbourhood survey, with over 3,000 leaflets being delivered to homes and business owners in the Parish over July 2019.
This survey aims to gather the views of the residents, workers and business owners in the Parish about a variety of planning issues that could affect the community in the years ahead.
Once the survey closes on 31st July, the data will be analysed and combined with the results of online surveys, to draft a set of Parish-specific planning policies for the community to approve, before compiling the final Neighbourhood Plan for submission to Newcastle City Council Council and holding a public referendum.

Wildlife in Woolsington
It is estimated that there is a herd of about 150 roedeer which wander around all parts of the Parish.
You don`t have to try very hard to find them, they can often be seen feeding on open fields. Sadly some are killed on the roads every year so please drive carefully.
Barn Owls hunting for voles. These pictures were taken from Middle Drive in Woolsington looking north towards the Wheatsheaf.
Sadly barn Owls are not as common as they used to be due to loss of natural habitat. But if you are out and about around dusk, then keep your eyes open, you may see one.
