Tynemouth has received grants from several organisations
Residents in North Tyneside are hoping recent regeneration and conservation efforts could help their town win a national award.

Tynemouth is through to the final of the Royal Town Planning Institute's Built Heritage award.

Dozens of private properties, shops and businesses in the Tynemouth Village area of the town have won grants to restore original building features.

Judges will visit the town in October to see the area for themselves.

Original features restored include sash windows and cast iron railings, with many shopfronts reverting to a traditional Victorian style.

The scheme has had investment over the years from organisations including English Heritage, the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Single Regeneration budget and North Tyneside Council.
