Meetings of the Partnership

One of the key ways in which the Tyne Catchment Partnership works is through regular meetings of the whole Partnership.  These meetings are used as a way to share information and opportunities, for members to gain an understanding of the range of issues and activities across the catchment, and to facilitate the building of relationships between members.

The notes taken at each meeting are here to download, along with a brief summary.
