Persimmon Homes resubmit Coatham Links planning application

Redcar and Cleveland Council is informing residents that Persimmon Homes have resubmitted a planning application for the proposed Coatham Links development.

Approximately 2,000 letters are being sent to residents in the area and those who objected to the original application, explaining how they can view the application.

Plans will be available to view from Monday, June 9 to Friday, June 27 at two locations - the Council's offices at Belmont House, Rectory Lane, Guisborough during normal office hours and in a room signposted from the Redcar Leisure Centre reception area, weekdays from 10am-7pm.

The plans can also be accessed through the Council's website.

It is anticipated that the Council's Planning Committee will meet to discuss the application later in the year.

The application sets out details of a mixed use redevelopment comprising new tourism, sport , recreation, leisure, housing and community facilities including associated highways and infrastructure works.

Persimmon Homes regional projects director Peter Jordan said: "Persimmon remain committed to the delivery of the Coatham Links project. The new application builds upon that which was previously approved and adds urban design enhancements responding positively to requests made by the regional development agency, One North East."

I wonder why since this was posted here you have not brought into the public domain that seafront apartments including floodable garages are once again 4/5 stories?

Also are we to lose the Coatham Millstone situated near the Kirkleatham Lane/Bridge Road roundabout due to proposed road widening Appendix Z Page 293 of 343 Transport Assessment? What if anything is proposed for "kink" on Bridge Road/ High Street West Junction?

The Development Masterplan identifies that the routes into and through the site will play a key role in shaping the layout,identifying both the importance of Majuba Road and the apparent conflict between its role as a primary route into the town and the desire to give pedestrians priority over vehicles.

The Masterplan identifies how this can be resolved by realigning the vehicular route, to leave the eastern end of Majuba Road traffic free and creating a more torturous route that will deter its use and reduce traffic speeds.

Is it not torturous enough now getting vehicles/people into Redcar Town Centre? How will this help reduce its decline?
