Plans to create more than a hundred new car parking spaces on Saltburn ’s Marine Parade could be in doubt after a council cabinet member “hit the brakes” due to mixed views.

Councillor Carl Quarterman, who has the highways and transport portfolio on Redcar and Cleveland Council, says he wants a clearer view from residents and businesses as to whether they are behind the plans.

A reduction in the ‘top prom’ pavement in order to widen the road is intended to accommodate more right angled parking, and while some parking will be lost on the town side of Marine Parade due to the introduction of double yellow lines, the overall impact will be more spaces for motorists.

Funding from the Tees Valley Combined Authority, part of a £1.2m investment, is in place for the current scheme, but has to be spent by April next year.

Last month a protest against the plans was organised with some residents fearing community space for informal gatherings on the prom could be lost to accommodate cars and vehicles.

 

Detectives are appealing after two attempted burglaries at stores in Middlesbrough, which are believed to be linked.

The first incident happened around 5:40am on Monday at the One Stop at Shelton Court in Thorntree, where a silver Vauxhall Corsa attempted to gain access by ramming the shop shutters.

No access was gained and the vehicle made off along Kenmore Road.

Two or three young males are believed to have been in the vehicle.

Around 1am yesterday, the same vehicle attempted to gain access to Sainsbury's on Fosdyke Green, again this was unsuccessful and the young males in the vehicle made off.

This vehicle has now been recovered by police.

CCTV enquiries are ongoing and detectives would appeal for any witnesses or anyone who may have private CCTV footage in the areas around the times of the incidents to contact them on 101.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have apologised after garden waste collections did not take place in parts of our area yesterday.

Due to short term staff sickness resulting in a shortage of staff, and also catching up on last week’s collections, some garden waste bins in Guisborough, utton Village, Newton Under Roseberry and Pinchinthorpe have not been emptied. 

The council is asking residents affected by this to put their bins back out for collection this morning.

The council has apologised for any inconvenience caused.
