Zetland FM Local News - 5th November 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Saturday 5th November 2016.
Redcar MP Anna Turley has called for the former SSI site to be “liberated” so that it can be redeveloped.
Anna made the call yesterday in a Parliamentary debate on the steel industry which she secured along with Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland MP Tom Blenkinsop.
During her speech, she focused on the “inaction” of the Government during the SSI closure and told MP's that the site is currently “in limbo”.
Cleveland Fire Brigade is urging those planning to celebrate bonfire night to ‘Be Safe, Not Sorry’.
Every year people are injured and property is damaged due to the misuse of fireworks and unofficial bonfires.
John Feeney is the group manager for Cleveland Fire Brigade:
Free afternoon parking is on offer for Christmas shoppers in council-run Pay & Display car parks across the borough and on-street parking in Redcar.
Running until Tuesday 10 January, car parks across Redcar and Cleveland will be free for motorists after 1pm every day with normal charges still applying between 8am and 1pm.
The council is hoping that the initiative will allow a lot more people to take advantage of the wide range of shopping choices available across Redcar and Cleveland.
For more information on the free parking scheme, which also covers on-street parking, motorists should refer to notices in each council car park or go to www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk/parking.
