Aesha Awan

Ward 4

Aesha Awan is studying Law at Newcastle University. She believes the destruction of rail and lack of planning and green spaces in Newcastle are linked to a failure to talk to communities about decisions that will affect them.

Ward 4 is consistently left out when it comes to social services such as youth centres, and arts and community spaces. If she is elected, Aesha will push for transparency on council, development that puts people above profit and nurturing Newcastle’s diversity.
