It's expected that a local lockdown will come into force in the North East tomorrow - but our area will not be affected.

A ban on socialising with anyone from a different household and a 10pm pubs curfew are likely to be included to stop the spread of covid-19 across the northern parts of the North East.

The current plan is for measures to come into force just after midnight on Friday September 18, in a bid to reverse a dramatic spike in coronavirus cases across the region.

Newcastle, Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Gateshead, County Durham and Sunderland are all expected to be included.

 

The redevelopment of The Regent cinema in Redcar is about to begin as builders prepare the site for construction.

Contractors, BAM Construction, are currently carrying out works to improve the sewerage system before the main demolition and groundworks can take place in the coming weeks.

Due to the increased building activity at the seafront location, Newcomen Terrace will be down to one lane for several weeks, with a temporary traffic lights system in place.

In November 2019, the Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s Cabinet approved an allocation of £9.68 million from the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority Investment Fund for the redevelopment of the cinema.

 

Two pop-up cycle routes aimed at providing more space to cyclists and pedestrians after lockdown have been ended early due to the ongoing theft and vandalism of the routes’ signs and cones.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council was allocated £96,000 from Government funding via the Tees Valley Combined Authority to deliver projects that will allow cyclists and pedestrians to have more space.

The Council has had to end the temporary schemes at Wilton Lane between Guisborough and Wilton, and from South Bank Railway Station to Normandy.

The remaining funding will go towards improving existing walking and cycling links throughout the borough, including along The Lines between South Bank and Normanby as part of the Council’s work to support a zero-carbon borough by 2030.
