New lease of life for Whitby West Cliff shelters

New lease of life for Whitby West Cliff shelters

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 7:44am 1st September 2010.

Whitby’s historic West Cliff shelters and cliff lift station have been gifted a new lease of life following the completion of a refurbishment programme by Scarborough Borough Council’s  Asset Management department.


The works included roofing and timber repairs, and the complete redecoration of each shelter incorporating a new vibrant colour scheme.    The kidney shaped toilet block adjacent to the paddling pool has also been redecorated to match the shelters. 


The Asset Management department worked in conjunction with borough ward councillors, Joe Plant and Mike Ward, to complete a programme that benefits both the community they represent and visitors to Whitby.


Cllr Joe Plant said:


“The shelters are looking really good and provide perfect locations for residents and visitors to enjoy the views of this prime vantage point in Whitby.  CCTV in the area should now help to prevent the vandalism that has plagued the shelters in the past and together with a future maintenance plan, help to keep the shelters in a good condition for all users.”


Cllr Mike Ward added:


“A fantastic improvement can be seen after the recent repairs and redecoration, which includes a new colour scheme.  The work was certainly needed and I would like to thank all those involved in the project.  With other works in the pipeline and on going discussions at the West Cliff Project Team meetings, I look forward to seeing further enhancement of the West Cliff area.”
