Eyesore site to get a facelift
Posted by Glynis
THE area of neglected land, at the rear of Norfolk Close and Troutbeck Road, Redcar, is to get a facelift and pupils from Sacred Heart RC School will be involved in the work.
Acting on a suggestion from Ray Hall. Secretary of the Newcomen Ward Community Forum, I met with Coast & Country Housing, to discuss including the site in the Aspire Project, a scheme for companies to engage with school leavers.
Residents are currently being consulted and if all goes well, work will be organised by Sacred Heart pupils during the summer holidays.
Various suggestions for improvements are being considered such as improving the land, metal or stone planters, painting and possibly a few small pieces of play equipment for young children will be included.
Money has been allocated in the Council’s budget to allow one metre to be removed from the grass verge in Newlands Grove, Redcar to improve access to Brotherswater Court.
