Welcome to the Autumn issue of Council News. We have declared a climate change emergency and are pushing forward plans to be carbon neutral by 2030. In addition to committing to making climate change an integral part of all Council decision making, we have developed new proposals for tackling poor air quality on Tyneside in response to public feedback. Further consultation on proposals will take place with directly affected people and organisations during the autumn before final proposals are confirmed and submitted to Government later in the year.

Did you know that more than half of Gateshead is made up of countryside? Autumn is the perfect season to get out and about and discover those hidden gems on your doorstep, from the beautiful Thornley Woods which features on our front cover to Windy Nook Nature Reserve. Check out the Heritage Open Days on p25 or follow #greatgateshead on Twitter for more ideas on great days out.

There's lots of good news stories in your area and in this issue we feature the Marley Hill bowlers who have taken over running their own bowling green and pavilion and the residents of Beacon Lough East who have secured £2.1m of funding to help their community thrive.

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