Action to tidy derelict site

MANY readers will have seen the unsightly derelict site on the Promenade near the Esplanade, Whitley Bay, which is a real blot on the landscape.

I’m pleased to let readers know that I have requested council planning officials to take enforcement action against the owners of the site to have it tidied up.

I’m really hopeful that work to improve the site can be undertaken within the next few weeks.

Coun JOHN O’SHEA
