Vision 2030 sets out the framework and direction of travel for the Gateshead Strategic Partnership to deliver the vision for the Borough. It aims to drive forward the economic, social and physical improvements in Gateshead in the future.
It was agreed in 2015 that Vision 2030 needed to be looked at again in light of the changes to the GSP partners, organisations and networks involved and most importantly in the context of less resource due to sustained government reductions in funding. This review was designed to enable the GSP to be better placed to achieve positive outcomes for the people of Gateshead and deliver the ambition of Vision 2030. The ambitious and aspirational vision for Gateshead remains the same:
"Local people realising their full potential, enjoying the best quality of life in a healthy, equal, safe, prosperous and sustainable Gateshead."
The realisation of the Vision will make a difference to local people in Gateshead by improving the wellbeing of all residents and proactively ensuring that there is equality of opportunity.
We have a great track record when it comes to working with partners to deliver quality services in Gateshead. We have worked together with partners on a number of projects that have made a real difference to our residents and communities in Gateshead:
- We are working with British Gas Solar to install solar panels in dozens of public buildings across Gateshead. The first solar panels have been installed at Gateshead College's Academy for Sport and Birtley Leisure Centre. Three schools and Gateshead Civic Centre which will provide cheaper energy.
- The development of Brandling Street Arches is a partnership between Network Rail, Gateshead Council and the Railway Heritage Trust. It has created a new business area as well as improving connections between central Gateshead and Gateshead Quays.
- A new community hub developed by Edberts House with local people from Old Fold and Nest Estates in east Gateshead is now open. Pattinson House is the latest project spearheaded by Edberts House. Created from two disused shops, it is now a light, multi-functional space for local people and organisations to use.
- The 'Flowers in the Vale' project has received £7,800 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Council, together with the Clara Vale Conservation Group, is working with local people to bring the meadows back to life.
