We have faced an enormous challenge to set our budget. Further and deeper cuts from central government are continuing to impact on the everyday lives of local people and I have written about how  we are fighting for a fair and adequate approach to local government funding. We have listened to the views of those who took part in our consultation and you can read about some of the changes we have made to our initial proposals.

We also want to hear from people on the subject of tackling air pollution. A legal order from the Government had demanded action from Gateshead, Newcastle and North Tyneside councils to improve air quality in certain areas in the shortest time possible and by 2021. The councils are now consulting on options to reduce the impact of emissions and I am encouraging people to give us their views.

We are delighted to announce a Council-owned dementia resource centre in Birtley has kept its 'outstanding' status following a recent inspection and we also have the results of our 'Gateshead's Great Outdoors' photography competition. We had an overwhelming response and the quality of entries was really high, proving that Gateshead's countryside really is great!

We also include our regular features including health matters, what's on and much more, including local news and key activities taking place over Easter.
