Alongside the masterplan we have prepared a Town Investment Plan for Redcar.
You can read our Town Investment Plan here and watch a video showing the proposals here. The plan below shows the five projects that were included in the Town Investment Plan.
Some of these projects combine several the proposals which we consulted on.
Please scroll down to see more details on these projects
Project 1: Town Centre Transformation, Esplanade and Station Road Scheme
We will enhance the High Street by improving the paving and appearance of public spaces. We aim to create an uncluttered environment and develop spaces for events and activities. Furthermore, improvements will be made to Station Road as it connects to The Regent cinema towards Redcar Central Station, effectively serving as a gateway to the town. Queen Still will also be enhanced.
As part of the design, we will be celebrating Redcar’s history and culture by introducing public artwork. The High Street and Events Space will be developed in conjunction with the Culture and Leisure Anchor Attraction project.

Project 2: Culture and Leisure Anchor Attraction
A new family activity centre and relocated library/cultural hub is proposed all under one roof. The family activity centre will include indoor activities for people to enjoy. This will help to turn Redcar into a year-round destination; less dependent upon good weather.
The new library and cultural hub will also help to create a new community focus. Alongside the more traditional reading offer, this could include access to new technologies, an exciting story telling area, computer spaces, visitor information and rooms for exhibitions, meetings and other events/functions.

Project 3: Town Centre Management
Rediscover Redcar will provide a dedicated resource to liaise with businesses, investors, landlords and residents informing them of the plans and developments within the Town Deal Programme, while also developing a meaningful stakeholder forum to provide insight on the current challenges and opportunities facing the High Street.
The service, which will be based at the former Hensons site on West Terrace, will also administer support to businesses, seek to improve the visitor experience and co-ordinate and support events and activities. For further information, please visit our dedicated Town Centre Management page.

The facility, located at Redcar and Cleveland College, will be unique in Tees Valley, delivering a range of courses for young people aged 16-18, including apprenticeships, industrial programmes and a Higher Education offer. There will also be courses for the existing workforce, enabling them to adapt current skills and develop new skills to support the adoption of clean energies for commercial, industrial and domestic use.
