Councillor Karen King, the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, has announced that she will be taking part in a skydive to raise money for her two mayoral charities.

 

Plans for 49 homes next to Teesside school have been rejected by councillors.

Developer Gleeson Homes had applied for permission to build a mix of two, three and four-bed homes on 1.4 hectares of land next to Rye Hills Academy, Redcar.

However Redcar and Cleveland councillors on the regulatory committee went against planning officers’ advice and voted 11-0, with one abstension, to reject planning permission.

Gleeson Homes says it is 'most disappointed' at the decision and plans to launch an immediate appeal.

 

It's been announced that the popular East Cleveland Klondike Grand Prix cycle race will be making its return on Sunday 29 April along with a new junior race in Guisborough.

Thousands of spectators packed the start and finish of the race in Guisborough last year and even more lined the route through the East Cleveland villages as competitors fought tooth and nail to claim top honours in British Cycling’s Spring Cup.

This year, the race will once again be the opening round of the HSBC Business Elite Spring Cup, which is the fourth road race of the UK Elite spring cycling season.

It is the final opportunity for some of the top Pro-Continental teams to battle for their places in the Tour De Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain.

The race has been organised by East Cleveland Villages Big Local for a second year with part sponsorship from Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council.

 

Councillor Karen King, the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, has announced that she will be taking part in a skydive to raise money for her two mayoral charities.

Taking place on Thursday 5 April, the money raised from the jump will go to The Junction in Redcar, a charity which supports vulnerable young people aged five to 25, and Still Parents – a baby bereavement support group for families.

The idea to take part in the skydive came from the Mayor’s sister-in-law Lorraine King, who will be helping Karen with fundraising and will also be jumping alongside her.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up for donations.
