The Former junior School at Marske Mill Lane - An Update


Over the past year Saltburn Community and Arts Association (SCAA) has organised three public meetings to consider what should happen to the buildings and grounds formerly occupied by the Junior School which moved to the new campus in the summer of 2009. In the spring of this year Redcar and Cleveland


Council announced that along with a number of other assets the former school was to be disposed of. SCAA were aware that redundant assets of the council could be secured for community benefit by Community Asset Transfer (CAT). For three months this summer a group of volunteers


co-ordinated by SCAA has been working on a proposal for a CAT covering the school buildings and grounds. The group has been contacted by almost forty groups and individuals who wish to use the former school as part community or business activities. From this work a big idea has emerged, to build on


the impressive levels of creative activity which already exists in Saltburn and the surrounding area under the title of


The Works@Marske Mill. Provision will include: •


• •


• •


Studio and exhibition space along with specialist resources to support a wide range of art and creative activity.


Space for drama and music rehearsal and performance.


Provision of an accessible local archive.


Space for sport and outdoor activities including junior football and a skatepark.


An enhancement of tourism through the establishment of a holiday hostel and campsite and support to environmentally friendly transport.


As this document is being prepared we are looking forward to the next public meeting. This is to be held at 6.00pm on Friday, 28th October in the Community Hall at SCAA Albion Terrace, Saltburn. To learn more about these exiting proposals check
