Saltburn Transport Masterplan Study

On behalf of the Council, Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure is undertaking the Saltburn Transport Matserplan Study to identify ways to improve transport and parking within Saltburn. 

The study, primarily focussing on parking, has been commissioned as a result of issues raised and complaints made by residents about the level and nature of parking in the town, particularly during the summer months.

The study commenced with a parking survey at the height of the summer season in August, followed by a second parking survey undertaken in October. These two surveys will allow Capita to compare parking levels and estimate the impact of tourist parking upon 'normal' parking levels.

As part of this study, we are keen to learn your general views on the town's transport issues.

You can express your thoughts by completing an online questionnaire at:

Alternatively, paper copies of the questionnaire are also available to complete and submit at the Saltburn Library open Monday to Friday between 10am – 5pm and Saturdays between 09:30am – 12:30pm.

Please note that the closing date for responses is 31st May 2022.

Saltburn Valleys CIO

​The three Saltburn valleys, Hazel Grove, the Skelton Beck valley (including Rifts Wood and the Valley Gardens) and Saltburn Gill are important green space close to the town. The Saltburn Valleys CIO is hoping to make a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore and enhance the heritage and environment of the valleys. We want to involve as many people as possible in preparing a plan that ensures the improvement and preservation of the valleys for future generations.
We would like your opinions about how we achieve these much-needed improvements. Please visit​ to complete the survey.​

Broadband coverage – Public Review


The Government wants to have nationwide gigabit-capable broadband as soon as possible. While great progress is being made, the Government is aware it needs to help in the parts of the country that are not commercially viable. 

£5bn was committed in the 2020 budget to ensure that all areas of the UK can benefit equally. The funding will be spent through a range of projects known as Project Gigabit. As part of this, Building Digital UK (BDUK) will fund contracts for suppliers to deliver gigabit-capable wholesale infrastructure to the hardest to reach areas.

Public Review stage

An Open Market Review (OMR) took place in April 2021. This OMR requested information from suppliers on their existing and planned broadband coverage over the next three years.

Durham County Council and BDUK now want to validate the information gathered through a Public Review process.

Stakeholders including the public, businesses, internet service providers and broadband infrastructure operators, are invited to provide feedback about the proposed eligible areas for government investment (intervention).

Suppliers who missed contributing to the preceding OMR, or had no definitive plans and/or evidence base on which to substantiate claims at that earlier stage, now have a final opportunity to notify Durham County Council and BDUK before the procurement stage.

Further information is available on the Durham County Council website at:  ​​

BDUK have now considered all comments submitted as part of the OMR and Public Review process. A Public Review Closure Note is now available, which details information on the outcome and includes a postcode-level map showing eligible premises.


BDUK are expected to release a procurement in January 2022, where suppliers will be invited to bid for the opportunity to deliver gigabit-capable broadband coverage to eligible premises. 

Tees Valley Strategic Transport Plan​

The Tees Valley Combined Authority is currently developing a Strategic Transport Plan due for publication in draft form during Autumn 2018.

This plan will set out how transport in the Tees Valley can sustainably support 25,000 new jobs by 2026 along with 22,000 new homes.  The aim is 'to provide a high quality, quick, affordable, reliable and safe transport network for people and freight to move within, to and from the Tees Valley'.

To do this we need to:

  • Improve our local railways by having more, faster and better trains and stations, so that journeys by rail are quicker and more comfortable.
  • Maintain and improve our roads so that they are safe and less congested.
  • Provide better bus services that are punctual and reliable, with improved passenger information and facilities, which provide access to where people want to go, when they want to go.
  • Provide safe walking and cycling routes to make it easier to travel on foot and by bike.
  • Make it easier and safer to transport freight by road, rail, sea and air.

Consultation on proposed renewal of dog control powers (Redcar & Cleveland Public Spaces Protection Order 2016, previously extended as Public Spaces Protection Order extension no. 1 of 2019)​, with variations to introduce new dogs on leads powers

The council is asking anyone who lives, works, does business, or visits the borough for their views on its proposal to renew or extend the existing dog control powers in force within the borough for another three years (until 30 June 2025).

The council is also proposing to introduce new dog control powers, including a “leads by order/direction" provision, which will have borough-wide effect, and targeted “dogs on leads" requirements for some formal parks and gardens in the first instance.

The current powers take the form of a public spaces protection order (PSPO) and have been in force since 1 July 2016. These powers allow the council to take enforcement action by issuing on the spot £100 fines to dog walkers who:

  • fail to clean up after their dog;
  • permit their dogs to enter areas of Redcar and Saltburn beaches between 1 May and 30 September;
  • permit their dogs to enter any of the council's nine cemeteries;
  • permit their dogs to enter any of the 64 fenced-off children's play areas across the borough;
  • fail to have the means to pick-up after their dog.

    You can view the content of the current Redcar & Cleveland public spaces protection order (dogs) extension no. 1 of 2019 below.

    Public Spaces Protection Or der Extension No 1 of 2019.pdf

    The current Order will end on 1 July 2022 unless the council extends it for a further three years so the council can continue to take enforcement action to tackle dog related antisocial behaviour.

    Having evaluated the effectiveness of the current Order, the council has concluded it needs to vary the PSPO to introduce new dogs on leads powers to address the upwards trend, established in recent years, of dogs being dangerously out of control in public places. The incidents of “dangerous dogs" reports to Cleveland police have increased three-fold (+200%) during the last three years.

    The proposed new powers will allow the council to take enforcement action by issuing on the spot £100 fines to dog walkers who:
  • refuse to put and keep their dog on a lead when asked to by an enforcement officer (“leads by order/direction")
  • fail to keep their dog on a lead when in any of the seven designated formal parks and gardens (“dogs on leads")

    Click onto the location maps below to view the restricted areas where the council proposes the dogs on leads provision applies:

    Locke Park

    Parts of Borough Park

    Zetland Park

    Marske valley gardens

    Marine Parade lower path gardens

    Parts of Saltburn valley gardens

    Coronation Park, Loftus

    The council's proposals would mean the council will retain and, by introducing dogs on leads requirements, further strengthen a robust approach to enforcement, which removes excuses for dog walkers failing to pick up after their dog or keep their dogs under effective control and considerably increases the risks for dog walkers who continue to offend.

Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) considers the need for pharmaceutical services in the area, describes services currently available and makes an assessment about current and likely future needs for pharmaceutical services in the HWB area.

Every HWB in England is required to publish a PNA. It must be kept up to date so it may be used by NHS England and NHS Innovation to help shape pharmaceutical services for our population. Redcar and Cleveland  last published its PNA in March 2018 and it must publish a new one by 1st October 2022, in line with statutory requirements.


South Tees Health and Wellbeing Board recently conducted surveys about people's experiences of local pharmaceutical services. These views were considered in preparing the draft of this new PNA for 2022, which is now available for statutory consultation. The document can be read at Redcar and Cleveland PNA 2022 Draft​

We would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to answer some questions about your views on our draft PNA. Feedback from the consultation will be used to complete the final version to be approved by the HWB by its due date.


This survey closes at midnight on Sunday 17th July 2022.


The questionnaire is completely anonymous and any information you give will not be linked to you. All data are held in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 and Middlesbrough Council's Data Protection Policy.
