Further improvements to Redcar seafront and town centre have been granted planning permission as part of Redcar’s Town Deal.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s Regulatory Committee approved plans for a new family attraction to be built, which will be known as the Culture and Leisure Anchor Attraction. This will transform Redcar’s High Street and Esplanade and create a new outdoor events space.

More indoor cultural and leisure activities will be on offer which will help Redcar become a year‐round destination, creating a more vibrant and attractive Esplanade, and enhancing the town’s leisure offer for both locals and tourists.

A new relocated library will also help to create a new community focus, providing a modern, exciting and welcoming space for all, with access to digital technology, information, services and learning. It will include a children’s library with a storytelling area and will be flexible for a range of events and activities.

The cultural hub will replace the existing library provision based at Redcar and Cleveland House and place the library at the heart of the town centre, supported by a regular programme of events.

Also approved at the Council’s Regulatory Committee was the public realm improvements to Redcar’s high street. This means residents and tourists will see improvements to the area such as the introduction of new street furniture, more landscaping with plants and trees, improved lighting, and more. The improvements will help create a vibrant town centre which attracts more visitors and residents, supporting local independent businesses, jobs and attracting further investment.
