Controversial plans to build up to 75 houses on the "strategic gap" between Saltburn and Marske have been dismissed on appeal.

The ongoing saga of proposals to redevelop Saltburn Riding School for housing took a turn in favour of elected members when the Planning Inspectorate rejected an appeal against the council's decision to refuse permission.

The inspectors also warned any future development was unlikely to be approved by them amid concerns over the harm to the landscape.

 

The oldest lifeboat in the world, the Zetland, has made her first journey for 55 years, temporarily leaving her home in Redcar to undergo a programme of sympathetic conservation and preservation.

The project has been organised by the Friends of Zetland Lifeboat, a registered charity, which is made up of a strong crew of dedicated volunteers committed to conserving her for another 200 years.

Phil Boville from the charity explained what will happen to the Zetland over the coming months.

 

One of the stars of the hit BBC documentary ‘The Mighty Redcar’ has performed at an awards ceremony for looked after children.

Dylan Cartlidge, who was fostered himself, performed for looked after children, young people and carers from the borough after the awards were presented at the ‘TunedIn!’ building in Redcar.

The annual awards evening recognised outstanding achievements of looked after children, including categories such as academic excellence, sporting excellence and community spirit.

Dylan presented an award himself, along with the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Dennis Teasdale and Leader of the Council, Cllr Sue Jeffrey.
