It's the Redcar seafront experience!

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is hosting a unique interactive seaside exhibition that will give the public the chance to inspire architects to deliver a scheme geared to regenerate Redcar's seafront.

The 'Love it, Hate it' exhibition will be in a marquee on Redcar Esplanade from Wednesday, July 23 to Sunday, July 27, 10am-4pm each day, and hopes to welcome hundreds of visitors to choose what type of design or use of space they would love to see - and what they would hate to see.

The exhibition feedback will be included in a briefing document for an exciting design competition, created by the Council, in partnership with the Environment Agency, and co-ordinated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), which invites design professionals to generate ideas linked to the town's planned coastal defence scheme.

The design brief is for ideas and approaches for the public realm aspects of the sea wall scheme, as well as a linked set of proposals for the roads, building facade and sites along the seafront.

RIBA will draw up a shortlist of five schemes for the second stage of the competition, with the authors invited to present proposals to a Jury Panel. Each shortlisted competitor will receive a £4,000 honorarium with the winner receiving an additional £4,000.

Log on here for details of how to register for the competition. Registration will close on Wednesday, August 20 and the deadline for submissions is 2pm on Wednesday, August 27.
