Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell today joined Friends of Spanish Battery, a campaign group battling to save a seaside beauty spot from commercial development, at North Tyneside Council's offices where they handed over a petition of more than 3000 local residents.

Alan Campbell said "Tynemouth is an award winning seaside village and the reason for that success is because regeneration has been sensitive and has had the backing of most residents. It is clear that this proposed development is neither sensitive to the area nor does it have local backing.

"We all want to welcome visitors including cyclists to Tynemouth but it's not obvious that this site in particular marks the end of the cycle way nor is there anything proposed here that could not be provided nearby either in the village or as part of the Fish Quay regeneration.

"But above all this is green open space, part of Tynemouth's history, and much loved by visitors and residents alike. Just because it's possible to develop somewhere doesn't mean it's necessarily a good idea. Take away a quiet open space and you cannot easily put it back.''

Local MP Alan Campbell today joined North Tyneside MP Mary Glindon at a visit to the Cedarwood Centre in North Shields to see at first hand the work of the National Citizen Service.

The NCS are running a summer programme for 15 to 17 years olds which combines activities and challenges with a social action project that seeks to help young people make a difference in their local communities. 

Alan Campbell said “It was a pleasure to visit and see the young people in action.   Already this summer, 248 teenagers from Tynemouth have taken part in the programme and have certainly made their mark in their communities.  Well done to all involved!”

Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell today joined Elected Mayor Norma Redfearn at a Q and A with Ray Lonsdale, the sculptor of the Fiddler Green Memorial at the Old Low Light in North Shields.

The North Shields Fishermen’s Heritage Project is a community based project dedicated to creating a fitting and lasting memorial to fishermen who left the port of North Shields and lost their lives just doing their job.  North Shields is one of the only ports left in the UK without a memorial.

Alan said "I want to thank all the volunteers who have been part of the project since the beginning.  They have worked tirelessly to make this a reality and it's great to see how far they have come in what is a short space of time.  I am looking forward to the official unveiling in September."
