Plans for a 5,000-capacity multi-purpose indoor Arena in Redcar have moved a step closer after Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council agreed terms to secure the site for the venue.
Following months of detailed negotiations the Council has agreed an option to lease the former Coatham Bowl site to Coatham Arena Limited for the development of £70 million Coatham Arena Project.
The announcement means the company can now move forward with a detailed planning application in the expectation that the Arena could open by 2028.
The new Arena will occupy the site that was once home to the Coatham Bowl which, for 40 years before it was demolished in 2014, played host to many famous acts such as The Pogues, Fairport Convention, Chris Rea, The Proclaimers, Ozzy Ozbourne, Slade and Whitesnake to name just a few.
A busy sliproad in Middlesbrough was closed following a serious crash yesterday.
Just before twenty to nine yesterday morning, police closed off the eastbound slip road on the A66 near the Hartington Interchange following the collision.
The road was closed for some time, with motorists told to avoid the area where possible and find alternate routes.
Three ambulance crews, a specialist paramedic, a clinical leader, and the Great North Air Ambulance all attended the scene.
Three patients were transported by road to The James Cook University Hospital for further treatment.
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council has approved a new garden waste subscription service.
Cabinet members agreed to introduce a fortnightly garden waste subscription service at a meeting on Tuesday.
Unlike household waste and recycling, there's no legal requirement to collect garden waste so councils can charge for collections.
Rather than remove the service, the council has agreed to keep the service for those residents that need and value it.
The optional service, which will come into effect in April 2024, will cost £40.00 for one garden waste bin to be collected fortnightly between April and November.
Further updates on more detailed plans for the scheme and how to sign up will be released soon.
