Public asked for views on east side regeneration

A PROJECT to regenerate the East Side of Whitby will be asking local residents what changes they would like to see.

After setting up a steering group, members of the East Side Action Plan are now keen to hear people’s views.

They will be hand delivering surveys to the 1,500 properties on the East side of the town asking for feedback on activities and facilities for children and families and both young and older people, jobs and what they would most like to see improved.

People are also invited to present their ideas for improvements such as health services, street lighting, parks and open spaces, allotments and community activities.

They have to be returned to drop off points such as the Coliseum, Artefacts on Church Street and Whitby Glass among other locations.

Members of the steering group will also be calling at the parent and toddler group and bingo sessions are being held at the Eastside Community Centre on Tuesday 3 April to talk about the project.

Volunteers are also being asked to help deliver the leaflets. If interested a meeting is being held at the centre next Thursday at 7.15pm and on Friday 30 March the leaflets will start to be distributed.

They have to be returned by Friday 20 April and can also be filled in on line via
