The East Riding of Yorkshire Council has said it plans to demolish vacant properties on a Bridlington Street in December as part of the town regeneration plan.

The demolition of houses on Palace Avenue is to take place after the properties were acquired by the council through agreement with the previous owners.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “This work will bring real long-term benefit to Bridlington and help to create the right conditions for developers to invest in the town.

“The demolition will mean that the council can carry out major improvements to Bridlington’s highways making it easier for people to get to town centre shops and businesses without increasing congestion and helping to make the town centre an attractive and pleasant place to visit.

“The major investment into Bridlington’s infrastructure should ensure that the future of the town centre is protected and development is sustainable.”

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council said the demolition will allow for the realignment of Beck Hill, a new bridge to be built, the widening of Hilderthorpe Road and improved traffic management.

Further demolition of properties in Hilderthorpe Road is planned over the next 12 months.

A public exhibition outlining works within the Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan Phase 2 (BridITP2) will take place at The Spa Bridlington on Wednesday, 3 December, from 10am-5pm, and will also be on the agenda of the Bridlington Town Team meeting at 6pm, also at The Spa Bridlington.

The exhibition and meeting will provide further opportunity to view the plans and meet the project team.
