South Bank Drop In

People living in South Bank can find out more about the Renewal Plan and how it affects them at a drop in session.

It has been organised by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council in partnership with South Bank Tomorrow and will take place on Monday November 20, at Golden Boy Green on Normanby Road in South Bank from 1pm until 8pm.

The community has been and still is involved in the consultation process and visitors will be able to view a series of display panels explaining what the Renewal Plan is, the area affected by the plan, what the current state of play is regarding house acquisition and relocation assistance available to residents, as well as future plans for the area.

The event will be held in the main hall and a meeting room is available for any residents who want to hold private discussions.

The Cabinet Member for Housing and Neighbourhood Renewal, Councillor Chris Abbott, said: "This event reinforces the Council's commitment to the local community. It shows that we are working with residents to give them a better quality of life in a better environment."

The Chairman of the South Bank Housing Strategy Steering Group, South Bank ward Councillor Ian Jeffrey, said: "This is a really good opportunity for people to find out more about the renewal plan and how it affects them."

Interpreters will be at the event, which will also be attended by representatives from the Council's waste and recycling department.
