Saltburn's seafront is to be given a much needed facelift - the demolition of the beach cafe at Cat Nab and permission for rebuilding has been granted. The exisiting buiding is in a poor state of repair (think '1950's seaside town in the rain?!') and it's air of neglect has done little to enhance the prominent position it enjoys on the seafront. (View Plan-1 & Plan-2 here.)
Part of the Valley Gardens are also to enjoy refurbishment and restoration work which will help restore some of their former glory including some landscaping and the introduction of new facilities. The demolition of the bungalow and victorian greenhouses in the Valley Gardens to be replaced with picnic area, amphitheatre and hedge maze has also been approved. (View Before & After plans here.)
Planning permission for the demolition of the old miniature railway shed in the Valley Gardens is pending approval, and discussions are underway regarding the tea rooms in the Valley Gardens in conjunction with Upsall Hall, including the provision of a disabled toilet.
