A park and ride with 1,500 spaces for workers is being lined up to cope with a rise in staff at major regeneration projects in our area.
Land next to Steel House, on the former steelworks site in Redcar, has been earmarked for the park and ride.
Reports for next week’s South Tees Development Corporation board have revealed concept design work for the project was now underway - with new access to the site planned.
The paper states the new facility is needed to “accommodate the significant ramping up in workforce numbers” expected when projects such as Net Zero Teesside begin.
It added: “The facility will enable workforce members to park their vehicles outside of the secure Teesworks site and be security cleared within the park and ride zone, before boarding buses that will take them to their construction site destination.”
Cleveland Police have made an appeal to reunite a suspected stolen bike with its owner.
Officers have taken to social media to post a photograph of the black Carrera Vengeance bike, which is suspected to have been stolen in the Redcar area.
If you have any further information, or believe that the bike could be yours, contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
Thousands of households across Redcar and Cleveland are in line for a one-off £150 energy bills rebate.
Last month, the Government announced plans to help with rising energy and living costs.
This includes providing funding to local authorities for a one-off £150 energy rebate for households whose main residence is in band A to D and discretionary funding to support households who are in need but are not in bands A to D.
Eligible households will receive the rebate in the coming months with bill payers who pay by Direct Debit credited to their bank accounts shortly after their April council tax instalment is taken.
For those who do not pay by Direct Debit an online facility will be made available on the council’s website in April for the bill payer to provide their council account details and banking information.
If a bill payer chooses not to provide the information the council will reduce their council tax bill by £150 instead.
