Letter to the Editor

Having read the recent development news on the Tingdene park site in last month’s Talk of the Town, being a nearby resident brings with it certain concerns. Being a resident of Saltburn for some 15 years I am encouraged by any business that enhances the town and places us on the map thus encouraging tourism and the money spent that comes with it. However, like many of my neighbours, my

property backs both onto the train tracks and then onto the site which although has been there for some years I believed was safe in the knowledge that the site was used by mainly infrequent caravan owners. Now I read that this is being developed into a community for the over 45s, which now means I have in essence a new housing estate to gaze over whilst looking out of my bedroom window. Having viewed the homes and the proposed

internal roads and lighting within the confines of the site it fills me with utter disbelief that even though you are unable to obtain planning to build in Saltburn, you can without proper consultation go ahead and build what is in reality static bungalows. I have already responded to Redcar and

Cleveland Council having through the post received a proposed planning application for the perimeter fence, also available is a copy of the original planning application online. Despite Tingdene ticking the box indicating no

trees would be removed, I and plenty others will agree that the fence is not appropriate and that the developers despite the planning application, cut down mature trees that just happened to be in the path of the fence that they didn't have permission to erect in the first place. (They have now been granted retrospective permission: see an article on page 25.) Having spoken to some of my neighbours in

Irvin Avenue it would appear that I am the only resident looking onto the site that received such a letter from Redcar and Cleveland Council allowing me the opportunity to oppose the fence and browse over the submitted application by Tingdene, and so I urged anyone who may be affected by this development to contact the local authority or to go online.

Again it appears money talks in this borough

and that those directly affected by this development have not been fully appraised. It may be that when we come to sell our

property that the buyers are attracted by the light pollution and noise from the enclosed village that was originally meant as a caravan site. I really do hope that my concerns are not

proven correct both for myself and for those that may in the future decide to sell up. To end, if the owner is reading this, please

kindly stop landing your helicopter out my back; it’s annoying as I work shifts! Name withhold by agreement

September Car Event

Two 100-year-old cars were the stars of an historic motoring event at Saltburn, which attracted about 500 people, on Sunday, 19th September. The owners of a French-made Darracq racing car and a Golden Ford, as seen in silent films, made an unofficial run along the quiet area of the beach between the Ship Inn and Huntcliff. “A dog ran after them and barked, as they do, but there

was no trouble and they were not speeding,” said organiser Ernie Crust, of Middlesbrough and District Motor Club. The event was backed by a £1,000 parish council grant, and was attended by Redcar and Cleveland Council chiefs. A collection was taken for Help the Heroes. Picture by Stephen J Dowd.
