Plans for a new housing estate in Skelton are set to take a huge step forward.
Developers want to build up to 400 homes on land around Saltburn Lane close to Asda and the upcoming retail park.
The proposals have been in the works since 2014 and now permission is being sought by the council.
The abandoned mine nearby will remain as public space and all allotments will be kept.
Police and Coastguard teams have been called out to a person trapped on a cliff at Saltburn.
They were called to the scene on Saturday morning.
The Coastguard arrived with rope and technicians.
But the person managed to eventually free themselves and they were left in the care of Cleveland Police.
And arrangements for this year's Festival of Thrift at Kirkleatham Museum are now underway.
As the festival looms closer, the theme for the fifth annual event has been revealed as the power of nature.
Visitors can learn how to live sustainably by getting creative while saving money and the environment.
New highlights for this year include a mystery tour in a converted double decker bus, ideas for thrifty ceremonies and the chance to become a citizen of Cardboardia.
And it's set to take place on the 23rd and 24th of September at Kirkleatham Museum.
