The total number of reported Coronavirus cases in our area has shown a slight increase since yesterday, according to official figures.

According to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England, there have now been 337 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Redcar & Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.

That compares to 333 cases yesterday.

There are currently 589 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, that's another slight increase, up from 588 cases yesterday.

 

Work is under way to clear a key part of the South Tees Development Corporation site, days after it was brought back into public ownership.

One of the first sections of land to be developed - a 124-acre area known as the Grangetown Prairie - is being cleared and prepped as part of the masterplan to create 20,000 new jobs for Teesside.

Hartlepool firm Seymour Civil Engineering has been contracted to carry out the work, less than a week on from the purchase of the land.

Last week's compulsory purchase ruling granted the Development Corporation powers to buy up the former SSI steelworks, along with another 112 acres of land following a three-year-battle.

 

Residents in Redcar & Cleveland are being reminded of new rules now that the Dunsdale Household Waste and Recycling Centre has reopened.

The facility will only be accepting rubbish from Redcar & Cleveland residents who must bring proof of address with them,for example a driving licence or a utility bill. 

The council says it has had queries about which vehicles may need a permit and residents are being assured that no permits are needed for cars, 4x4s (including Landrovers and Range Rovers), estates and people carriers.

Vans and permit holders​ are also reminded they will not be allowed for the first seven days due to expected demand.
