Residents with views on Bridlington’s regeneration are invited to two meetings at Bridlington Town Hall to discuss issues facing the town.

Bridlington’s Town Team will meet this Wednesday, June 5, at 6pm.

As well as getting accurate up-to-date information about progress, the meeting is a chance for residents to express concerns they may have, and to talk about their hopes for the town in the future.

Bridlington Town Team chairman Maureen Bell said: “The Town Team is an informal meeting for all residents of Bridlington to meet, hear about and discuss the proposed redevelopment of Bridlington. As well as getting accurate up-to-date information about progress, it is also a chance for residents to express concerns they may have, and to talk about their hopes for the town in the future.”

Bob Hillery, president of Bridlington Tourism Association, said: “I would love to see lots of new faces down at the meeting on Wednesday, especially younger members to tell us what they would like to see. The ideas that are discussed get listened to.”

Then on Thursday June 6 at 6pm, the Bridlington Renaissance Partnership will hold its Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will hear a review of the activities of the Partnership during the last year, and consider the nominations for Chairman of the Partnership, the three Forum groups - Town Improvement, Learning and Skills and Community - and also Bridlington Town Team. The plan for activities over the coming year will also be presented to the meeting.

Bridlington Renaissance Partnership was formed in 1997, to bring together local organisations, groups, and businesses, with the aim of working together to improve the town on projects including: Bridlington’s CCTV system; setting up of Bridlington Community Resource Centre; The Spa; workspace at Bessingby Industrial Estate, and a range of other projects. The current programme includes the longer term plans for the Bridlington Area Action Plan.
