Residents of Coatham and Redcar are being encouraged to check out exciting plans for a £37m revival of part of Redcar – and have their say on how their community should be improved.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council is holding a public exhibition next week on the proposals for the new swimming pool and leisure centre for Redcar and consultation session on its plans to improve the Coatham area.

The authority’s cabinet has given its backing to proposals to build a new swimming pool and leisure centre, ‘myplace’ young people’s arts and media centre, multi-storey car park, library, civic and community facilities.

The new scheme for a Civic Centre in Redcar replaces plans for new leisure facilities and 357 new homes, which were abandoned earlier this year after the Supreme Court ruled that part of the land earmarked for development is a village green.

The Council will host an exhibition at Redcar Library from Monday, June 28, to Friday, July 2, from 10am to 4pm each day.

Visitors will be able to ask questions and see the plans for themselves, ahead of work beginning next spring, subject to the necessary planning approval being gained.

The week will also provide residents and traders in the area with the chance to air their views on initial environmental improvements that are planned and suggest ideas about what they would like to see in the area.

The Council is eager to hear about any improvements that local people feel would benefit the area – and visitors to the library will have the chance to give their comments.
