David Herbert - Cleadon and East Boldon
Living in Cleadon Village for 57 years, I value the green spaces threatened by the council’s destructive plans; such as the proposed flyover at Tilesheds which would destroy a large area of woodland and precious wildlife habitat. The Council has ignored local people’s objections. A lone Green councillor represents South Tyneside and pushed the council to declare a climate emergency. One Green in the room makes a difference! 1 in 5 voters across South Tyneside voted Green in 2019, resulting in our first Green councillor being elected. This proves that Greens can win here. We have shown we work all year round, not just at election time.
