Plans for South Cliff Gardens Revealed

Plans for South Cliff Gardens Revealed

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 2:38pm 28th June 2016. (Updated at 2:53pm 28th June 2016)

Ambitious plans for the restoration and improvement of South Cliff Gardens have been revealed at the first of a series of public consultations.

The plans will include comprehensive repair and restoration of the historic gardens as well as  new features to attract more people to the area. There will also be changes to the way the park is managed, a programme of training and community involvement, and a range of events and activities.

The £6.5 million scheme is planning to make a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Parks for People programme in autumn 2016 and if successful, work could start in 2018-19.

The project is a collaboration between Scarborough Borough Council, The Friends of South Cliff Gardens and Groundwork North Yorkshire.

Groundwork North Yorkshire’s Tom Mutton, Project Manager for the bid said:

“I think these first stage plans strike the perfect balance between restoring the precious heritage elements of the site and providing new features to bring people back into the park. South Cliff Gardens is such a beautiful and unique place but its condition is deteriorating to a point where it is at real risk of being lost and forgotten. This project could breathe new life into the gardens and make them fit for the 21st Century, attracting many more generations of locals and visitors to enjoy this wonderful green space.”

The plans can be viewed on the projects website and will also be available for viewing at drop in sessions later in the week.

  • Saturday 2 July 10.00am to 4.00pm at Scarborough Spa
  • Monday 4 July 9.00am to 5.00pm at Scarborough Town Hall
