Row breaks out over Whitley Bay redevelopment plans
by Andrew Glover, Evening Chronicle, May 4th 2011


A POLITICAL row has been sparked over multimillion-pound plans to redevelop a North East seafront.

Last week, North Tyneside Council announced its preferred developer for the Spanish City site in Whitley Bay.

Conservative mayor Linda Arkley confirmed Robertson North East had been chosen to transform the area with a hotel, apartments and an entertainment centre in the Spanish City Dome.

But the leader of the Labour group on the council has now called for a special meeting to discuss concerns about how the decision was reached.

Coun Jim Allan fully supports the regeneration of the site but believes there should have been wider public debate on the plans. Mrs Arkley has accused the Labour leader of “political spite” and claims the request for a special council meeting is “undermining the development”.

A second scheme was also discussed by the council’s cabinet, which Coun Allan said opposition members and local people should have had the opportunity to consider.

He said the second bid on the table could have been “really attractive for the borough, and the region as a whole”.

It is thought the alternative plan could have been worth significantly more than the chosen bid and could have generated more long-term jobs for Whitley Bay.

Well I'm still waiting to see some 'artists impressions' of the proposed development - so much for North Tyneside Council 'transparency' - this is what they said in their press release of 27th April 2011:

"The delivery of the proposed development of the Spanish City site will be subject to the usual planning process, when the public can submit their views into the decision making process"

Is this any way to treat the tax payers of North Tyneside?

Thought this news release from North Tyneside Council would be of interest:

06-APR-11

Issued by: Jeanette Hedley

A newly resurfaced road in North Tyneside can lay claim to being one of the 'greenest' in the North East, thanks to state-of-the-art technology that has helped to cut carbon emissions, reduce costs and minimise waste being sent to landfill.

Tynemouth Front Street, a busy road used by tourists visiting the nearby Tynemouth Priory and Castle, has been resurfaced by North Tyneside Council and Tarmac National Contracting.

The team was faced with a challenge when parts of the old road were identified as having been made using tar - a common practice up until around 30 years ago. This meant a specialist technique was needed to manage it safely.

The Council and Tarmac's technical team worked together to come up with a solution that would not only enable the material to be taken out and recycled safely, but one that would also save money and cut carbon.

Tarmac used an innovative on-site recycling system called FoamMaster to reuse material from the old road to reconstruct the foundations of new carriageway.

Not only did Tarmac's system help the council deal with the tarbound material safely, it enabled them to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and save over £108,000 in landfill disposal costs.

It also helped cut carbon emissions by around 50 per cent, both through recycling old materials into new and also by minimising lorry movements of material to and from site. Altogether, approximately 4,000 miles of transport movements were saved by using FoamMaster.

Derek Smith, Senior Manager, Engineering Services, for North Tyneside Council said: "We're really proud that Tynemouth Front Street is now one of the greenest roads in the North East. Not only do we have a longer-lasting road surface, we have saved money for local residents and cut carbon in the process."

Ian Carr, Technical Manager for Tarmac National Contracting added: "We worked closely with the Council on this project to understand their requirements and deliver on their goals of efficiency, sustainability and value for money. We have used recycled materials to save costs, cut carbon and create a more durable road."

Cenotaph War Memorial Whitley Bay

Good to see the a Planning Application has been made for the restoration of the War Memorial that stands on Whitley Bay Links. Just a shame that it was permitted to get into such a state!

Planning Application Ref 11/01010/LBC @ http://publicaccess.northtyneside.go...rchtype=WEEKLY

Re-pointing granite shaft, plinth, walls and steps: Replacement of stainless steel plaques with bronze

1. Masonry repairs and repointing to the granite shaft, plinth, low walls and steps of the Memorial.
2. The lifting and relaying of the granite setts forming the floor of the enclosure round the base of the plinth.
3. The cleaning, repatination and waxing of the existing bronze plaques and
decorations including repair and refixing of two damaged plaques, all related to the First World War.
4. The replacement with bronze plaques of all the stainless steel plates with lists of those who lost their lives in the Second World War.

From the Design, Access and Heritage Statement:
The Whitley Bay War Memorial is a Grade II structure commemorating the men who gave their lives in the First World War from all three armed services and the Merchant Navy. The names of all those who gave their lives in the Second World War were added in further record, so the Memorial forms the principal focus of the community’s tribute to those who died in both great conflicts.

Tyne and Wear HER (7380) describes the Memorial thus:
“War Memorial: Circa 1919. Granite memorial with bronze decoration and plaques; granite piers. Tall tapered square column. Bronze wreath decoration beneath Scotiamoulded and banded coping. Three bronze plaques on projecting panels bear the names of dead of both World Wars and commemorate the building of the memorial paid for by £7000.00 public subscription and £1000.00 from local authority funds.
Dwarf walls and semi-circular steps on North and South. Low square piers flank the steps. Twenty tapered square piers in outer circle formerly held chain.”

This description must have been made at a particular point in time after the theft of other bronze plaques, one relating to the First World War the rest recording Second World War losses. These were replaced with flat stainless steel panels with engraved lettering some filled with enamel but all of a very different character from the original bronze.

The War Memorial stands in a prominent position on the open Links opposite the Spanish City very definitely in the public eye since the Links are popular with both locals and holidaymakers as outdoor space close to the Town Centre. Since this memorial has a notable proportion of Royal Navy and Merchant Navy names it is of added poignancy that the site is so close to the sea.

The road behind the Dome was temporarily open today. Some traffic lights, a bit more tarmac on the edges, and some pedestrian crossings need to go up before it's fully open though.

Spanish City - Dome Development

Press Release from North Tyneside Council @ http://www.northtyneside.gov.uk/brow...ectCategory=23

Quote:
25-MAY-11

Issued by: Jeanette Hedley

Robertson's plans to secure the future of Whitley Bay's iconic Dome as a vibrant hub for visitors and residents will be set out at a public forum next week.

Robertson, the preferred bidder selected by North Tyneside Council to deliver the regeneration of the Spanish City development site, will take the stage of Whitley Bay Playhouse, on June 2 to unveil more details of their plans.

There will be two public forums - at 4.30pm and 6.30pm when everyone is encouraged to attend.

They aim to give the public an insight into the company's proposal to transform the Dome into a unique family entertainment and leisure centre that provides an additional attraction for visitors to the beach.

There will also be information available on the overall development of the three hectare site, which will also include a four-star style niche/boutique hotel, residential apartments, a care home and external improvements to create an attractive piazza, with cultural and leisure performance space, in front of the Dome.

Andy McLeod, from Robertson said: "I am delighted that we will have the opportunity to share our vision for the regeneration of the Spanish City site. As a business we pride ourselves in engaging with the communities where we operate, this and future such forums will not only allow the public the chance to view the plans but will also allow the opportunity to become involved in the final outcome.

"I was born and brought up in Whitley Bay and remember the Spanish City in its heyday. Still a local resident I'm thrilled to play my part in the next chapter of this iconic North East Landmark.

"Robertson has considerable experience in regeneration projects and we are looking forward to meeting everyone at the Playhouse on the 2nd of June."

The event is the start of the public engagement programme planned by the company, as they work up the proposals in more detail prior to submission for planning permission.

Those attending the forums will be encouraged to lodge any comments in writing to help shape the future plans.

Information will also be posted on North Tyneside Council's website at www.northtyneside.gov.uk to ensure anyone who is unable to attend the meeting can find out about the plans and submit their comments. There will also be a display of plans in Whitley Bay Library.

Elected Mayor, Mrs Linda Arkley said: "I am delighted that as a council we are able to facilitate this public forum so people can not just find out about what is planned, but can also give their feedback to help shape the future scheme.

"I am confident that in Robertson we have a company committed to making their proposals a reality and delivering a scheme that will benefit not just Whitley Bay but the borough as a whole.

"I am particularly pleased that the company have strong local ties with Whitley Bay and truly understand the importance of whole development to the town.

The development will be subject to the statutory planning process, when the public will also be able to submit their comments on the proposals.

The regeneration of the Spanish City site and the need tackle the reducing visitor numbers to the Whitley Bay, in line with the national trend for seaside towns, has been under discussion for many years.

North Tyneside Council began to assemble land in the late 1990s and early 2000.

This included acquiring the Spanish City Dome, a Grade Two Star listed building, which when it opened in 1910 was the largest dome in the UK after St Paul's cathedral in London.

A wider site - including the Spanish City site, former Empress Ballroom and Brook Street Gardens - was marketed by the Council across Europe to canvass innovative proposals for the three hectare sea-front site.

The brief was open to a mixed development that could include a 3* plus hotel, leisure and cultural uses, as well as residential and retail options. The sympathetic incorporation of the Grade II listed Dome was an essential factor for bidders to consider, with a requirement that the Dome is used in some way, whether as part of a hotel, cultural or community use.

And developers were asked to ensure that the scheme was able to deliver a high impact development on Whitley Bay's sea front, as part of a wider regeneration strategy for the town.

Having seaid that. It will be handy for that late night pint of milk :-}
The Co-Op is utter rubbish, and has been for some time. And according to the planning inspectorate, it's been operating about three times over it's expected capacity thanks to being the only small shop serving Tynemouth and those who don't have a car. Thank to it's location, there's more chance of the nearby Sainsbury's and news station store failing than the Co-Op closing down.

Which Sainsburys? Is that where the Broadway pub used to be?

I'd not thought about the little newsagents. Yes that too will have a tough time of it.

I think you are wrong about the Co-Op. Not that it is rubbish - I agree it could benefit from changing the way it does business. I think a new shop will kill it. Just look at what Morrisons in the ealry 1990s did to local shops in Shields and surrounding area.

When I first came to Tynemouth as a kid in 1981 - there wer 3 newsagents in the village centre. 2 butchers and at least one greengrocer.

Now there are no smaller shops like that (Granted that is not unusual in many towns) around, and a host of new bars and eateries. Fine enough but I think a supermarket on front street keeps Tynemouth a little bit local. It gives locals not wanting a pizza beer or Subway the opporuntity to go into the village and shop.

This I fear will be lost leaving Front street as a place that only comes alive with outsiders and mainly at night.

I hope you are right by the way. I just can't see it happening.

Whitley Bay war memorial set to be restored
by Sonia Sharma, Evening Chronicle, May 31st 2011


Whitley Bay war memorial will be repaired, cleaned and stolen bronze plaques will also be replaced in the scheme

A WAR memorial that has been blighted by vandals and thieves is to be restored to save it from further attacks.

The monument on The Links, in Whitley Bay, honours soldiers who died in the First and Second World Wars.

The Grade II-listed structure has had bronze plaques stolen from the site in the past and they have had to be replaced with stainless steel plates.

Now North Tyneside Council has drawn up proposals to restore the memorial.

Work will include masonry repairs to the granite shaft, plinth, low walls and steps, and the cleaning of existing First World War bronze plaques and decorations.

Two damaged plates will be repaired.

In addition, all the stainless steel tablets with lists of those who died in the Second World War will be replaced with bronze plaques.

They will then be coated with anti-theft SmartWater liquid in an effort to deter thieves.

The endless story of the "Spanish City Dome" re-vamp, continues . . .

Plans to revamp Whitley Bay's Spanish City
by Sonia Sharma, Evening Chronicle, June 3rd 2011



SPECTACULAR plans have been unveiled to transform the Spanish City site into a major tourist attraction that will pump millions of pounds into the economy.

North East firm Robertson has put together proposals that will create a leisure and entertainment hub for families at the famous dome in Whitley Bay, and help create hundreds of jobs.

The regeneration site surrounding the dome is set to include a 50-bed four-star boutique hotel, around 20 apartments and a sheltered accommodation complex.



The YMCA will provide activities in the dome itself aimed at people of all ages.

There are also plans for an art gallery, a 1950s diner, performance space, a recording studio, a pleasure garden and retreat lounge giving stunning views of the coastline.

One section is classed as an “agile” performance area with a floor that can be modified.

It could be used for skating as well as dancing.

Drifting OT, but has anyone else noticed there's an increasingly unsavoury element so the social scene on Front Street? It seems many who used to frequent Whitley Bay are now coming here, especially the foul mouthed women!

Well I was there with some friends last night and it all seemed to be an older crowd than you would get in Whitley Bay on a Friday night. No stag or hen parties and all behaving perfectly within reason. Perhaps I picked a quiet night in Tynemouth.

Whitley Bay on a Friday night is the complete opposite, noisy drunks and fights and that's just the lasses

Wilf, you posted the above at 8.30.

At about 7.40 this evening I was busy adding it to the WEBSITES Listing thread, at Section 09.

I open this Whitley Bay Developments thread at about 8.35, to add a comment referring people to it on Section 9 of the Websites Thread . . . and I see your post!!!!


SPOOKY!


Anyway, I would just like to (now) emphasise Wilf's comment above, and add that the Website is now added to our listing . . .

Whitley Bay depresses me. It really does.

I visted South Shields last week for the first time in an age and the stark contrast between the two places is eye opening.

South Shields is obviously under the eye of a forward thinking investing council who've made some really great improvements to the area. Ocean Park is absolutely wonderful.

The promenade and band stand area with all its facilities were really enjoyable. The beach was spotless (a tractor was in evidence with beach cleaning facilities)

The area was also very lively, even on a weekday. Full of families and the elderly enjoying the area.

Made such a huge difference.

I look at Whitley Bay and I see an area neglected, an afterthought which although with an equally appealing coastline just misses something

Some of the blame for this must lie firmly at the feet of the nimby residents who have vehemently complained about lack of development while simultaneously campaigning against anything and everything proposed for the town. Some of the arguments against the new shopping mall (yes, they were even against that!) veered on the ludicrous, and they have been instrumental in the lack of development on the seafront as it doesnt fit with their outmoded idea of what a seaside town should provide.

Still on the coast, apparently the floor above the new Tynemouth Sainsbury's will be an Italian restaurant ran by the people behind the excellent Sambucas on North Shields Fish Quay.

No it won't, Sambucas pulled out. I'm leas to believe it's going to flats now, or as the builders there think it's going to be an extension to sainsbury's after they created a giant hole in the ceiling last week.
