South Hylton public meeting - 7 Oct 2021

Sharon holds public meeting with Police and Crime Commissioner, Kim McGuiness at the Tansy centre in South Hylton.


After the lock-downs due to Covid-19 (since the beginning of 2020), Sharon had resumed her programme of public meetings and street surgeries.  Residents of South Hylton met with the Northumbria Police & Crime Commissioner, Kim McGuinness and myself.  We heard that Stagecoach conclude their bus services to the area at 7PM.  It was felt that this early ceasing of service is dangerous and prevents the elderly or disabled from fully enjoying access to their city.  Residents were frustrated by the lack of disciplinary action against those who ride motorcycles illegally, though they did call for a protected space for such motorcycles to be ridden legally.  Additionally, residents expressed a desire for more CCTV in the area to prevent crime and antisocial behaviour.  Sharon has written to the relevant bodies to raise these concerns, remaining in close contact with NEXUS and the police.

Sharon has communicated residents' concerns on to the relevant public bodies and has communicated back to those residents who raised issues, so if you were at the meeting, and you feel that your concern was not addressed, please do email Sharon on: [email protected]

Kim McGuinness continues to monitor the issues of the area with great skill and a fine eye for detail.
