Silverdale Place, Langdale Place, Eskdale Place, Whinlatter Place, Kirkstone Place and Honister Place are the six streets which make up the Western Area estate in Newton Aycliffe.
Livin is working closely with residents, community groups and partners to improve the estate and tackle the issues which have been identified in consultation with residents and owners.
Residents, Livin and partners, such as the Police and the Pioneering Care Partnership have used the results of previous community consultation to apply for a Lottery grant. In June 2019 £50,000 was awarded by the National Lottery Community Fund to support the residents to work towards the establishment of a Development Trust for the estate over the next two years. Livin have added an extra £22,000 towards the bid as matched funding to enable the development of local projects that will start to make a positive difference on the estate.
Current and forthcoming activities include:
The Western Area Estate is changing. There is a new sense of community spirit but we need residents to work with us and make things happen.
