Liberal Democrats are asking Redcar and Cleveland Council to include building a proper pier in its Local Plan.
The Labour run council says that “the Local Plan sets out a vision for improving the quality of life in the borough as a place to live and work and will determine how much development will take place and where it will be located.”
However, the draft version of the Local Plan makes no mention of a pier in Redcar .
Liberal Democrats Councillor Chris Abbott said:
“One thing missing from the Labour Council’s draft plan is a pier for Redcar and Lib Dems are asking residents to support the campaign to have a pier included in the Local Plan.
“It would show a commitment that the Council is listening to what people in Redcar want.”
Local Lib Dem MP Ian Swales added:
“I have told the Council officials that I will fight for Government money to help build a proper pier at Redcar . But if a pier is not included in the Local Plan then there is no chance.”
