As part of the council's coastal improvement project, works are planned to improve the appearance of Pembroke Gardens in Bridlington.

The loose gravel sections will be removed and replaced with an attractive surface that can be mechanically swept and maintained in good order.

This work will take between two and three weeks to complete, starting in mid-June, to be completed in time for the height of the summer season. Whilst the work is in progress, the gravel path sections of the gardens will be closedfor safety reasons. These works will not affect parking on Pembroke Terrace.

Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for environment and climate change at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We thank the residents of Bridlington for their patience whilst these works are carried out. These improvement works will ensure Bridlington continues to be an attractive place to live for residents and a fantastic town to visit for tourists.”

The following improvement works are also set to begin in Bridlington over the next eight weeks:

North Marine Drive: The strings of decorative lighting are being re-introduced, along the full length of the footpaths. The lights are planned to be turned on by late June/early July.

Lime Kiln Lane, Cliff Top Path: The broken thin wooden jockey railings, which runs from the land train stop to past the coastguard station will be totally replaced.

Queensgate Park: The wooden fence which is partly broken and hidden within the hedgerow on both Queensgate and Fortyfoot will be replaced with a low-level metal hoop-top fence.
