MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, is calling on the government to put £200 million towards the regeneration of the SSI site to kick-start Teesside's industrial renaissance.  

In May the South Tees Development Corporation secured an 'agreement in principle' with the three Thai banks to gain ownership of the site.

The next challenge is securing the funding needed to deliver on the masterplan for the site which aims to deliver 20,000 jobs.

Speaking at Business, Energy and Industry Strategy questions yesterday, Anna asked the Secretary of State, Greg Clark, to pledge the cash.

 

Police are warning motorists not to park their vehicles on beaches and slipways in our area.

At the weekend Police Community Support Officers patrolled the beach and slipway into the sea at Saltburn.

Several people were spoken to with regards to parking their vehicles on the slipway and beach.

This is not only an obstruction for the Coast Guard but you can be given a hefty fine, towage costs and a damaged car!.

Now officers are asking drivers to please be careful where you park your vehicle, and to observe the signs warning not to park on the slipway.

 

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council has formally committed to ending its use of single-use plastics and for Redcar to join Saltburn and Marske in achieving Plastic Free Communities status.

As well as committing to stopping its own use of single-use plastics wherever possible, the council will encourage people, businesses and other organisations in the borough to do the same to assist in reducing the amount of plastic in the world’s oceans.

The local Plastic Free Communities project is led by a partnership of the council, Marske Litter Action, Keeping It Clean Saltburn and the Friends of Redcar.

The partnership led to Saltburn and Marske achieving Plastic Free Communities status in April 2018.
