Time is running out for residents to have at look at plans to regenerate Whitley Bay seafront.

The public exhibition highlighting North Tyneside Council’s £36m seafront Masterplan will close to the public on August 28.

Hundreds of people have viewed the proposals, which have been on display this month at Whitley Bay Customer First Centre.

Mayor Norma Redfearn said: “Having made a commitment to keep people informed about our plans for the seafront, I am delighted that this information has been able to be displayed for longer to enable hundreds more people to take a chance to have a look at the plans and to make comments.

“The display will run until the end of August so there is still time for anyone to have a look at the information and to share their thoughts with us.

“We are looking forward to working closely with residents, businesses and other groups, as we move forward to deliver these ambitious plans.”

The Whitley Bay Seafront Master Plan involves over £36m of investment, all aimed at making the area even more attractive to visitors, residents and businesses.

The displays aim to bring residents, businesses and visitors up to date with progress on a number of key projects that are planned or underway at the coast, as well as offer an opportunity for the public to share their views.

Whitley Bay’s Customer First Centre, in York Road, is open 9am to 5pm on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday; 9am to 7pm on Tuesday and Thursday, and 9am to 5.30pm on Friday.
