Redcar Beach Action Group
Redcar Beach is not only dogged by litter. It also has a brick and rubble problem from decades of developments and demolitions. The last regeneration saw large amounts of building debris along the coastal defences. Not exactly a heart warming sight for families and tourists on their summer holidays.   FRIENDS OF REDCAR "Beach Action Group" have decided to deal with this problem head on. This community action group is striving for a clean and safe seafront. We'll create events and request local support. We're lobbying the council to change their policies regarding future developments to ensure the community are involved with the Final Completion Notices.
