Improvement works start on Marine Parade in Saltburn

Improvement works on Marine Parade in Saltburn have commenced. 

This is part of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s ambition to boost the visitor economy across the borough, improving the appearance of Marine Parade and the foreshore area.

The initial stages of this work will focus on Marine Parade with the renewal of the unique low concrete rail and the resurfacing of the seaward side footway.

Footway resurfacing work has been programmed to be carried out in two phases. The first phase is scheduled for the week commencing 22nd April with phase two taking place before the busy summer holiday period.

Shortly before the commencement of each phase, street furniture such as benches, bins and planters will be moved temporarily to enable the resurfacing work to be carried out. The street furniture will then be put back in place upon completion. In certain instances, furniture may be refurbished or replaced with new ones. 

The works are funded by the Welcome to Redcar and Cleveland funding, administered via Tees Valley Combined Authority. 

Cllr Lynn Pallister, Cabinet Member for Growth and Enterprise at Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, said:

 “Saltburn is one of our most popular and much-loved beauty spots and visitor numbers continue to grow year on year.  Residents will be able to see significant progress being made in the coming weeks, and visitors should see a much-improved Marine Parade ready for the peak summer season.  

“By carrying out these improvements, it is our ambition that the area will become even more popular and moving forward, these investments may then have the potential to open up further opportunities for additional leisure and hospitality businesses.”

Tom Bryant, Tees Valley Combined Authority’s Director of Infrastructure, said: 

“Saltburn is a huge draw for locals and tourists alike. These improvements will help beautify the area and, crucially, draw more people to spend time in the town and take advantage of its local businesses.”
