How are regeneration activities prioritised in Withernsea and South East Holderness?

The Withernsea Renaissance Plan (2011) was commissioned by the Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership to provide a long-term vision and framework for renaissance activities in Withernsea.

The aim is to make Withernsea a more appealing place to live, work visit and invest in.

The partnership influences, supports and delivers projects which contribute towards this aim.  The role of the partnership board is to have a strategic overview of the renaissance plan.  It also influences local and regional decision-making on socio-economic and environmental matters, including planning and community development.

Launch of Withernsea Seafront Improvement Plan

Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership (W&SEHRP) is proud to have developed a plan to enhance the seafront and promenade over the coming years that will guide our work to make this area a wonderful place for people to visit and for local residents to enjoy.

Pedestrian/Cycle Route, Withernsea Promanade

As part of a program of works to enhance the cycle network in the county, and following on from a similar successful scheme on Bridlington Promenade; East Riding of Yorkshire Council propose to introduce a new pedestrian/cycle route along Withernsea Promenade.

The intended route utilises the existing footway and carriageway along the promenade. The route details are shown on drawings which will be made available for anyone to view at the customer service centre in Withernsea during December.

Proposed cycle route drawings (pdf 8mb opens in new window)

The works, which are provisionally programmed to start in the New Year, will involve construction of dropped kerbs and minor reconstruction of short sections of footway at the North and South extents of The Promenade, along with associated signs.

Normal pedestrian and vehicular access to the areas in question should not be affected to any large extent.

Annual Progress Report and Action Plan

Each year, Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership develops an action plan which prioritises work for the following 12 months.  All actions must link to the agreed aims and objectives of the plan and each action is the responsibility of one of the partnership sub groups to deliver and report back on to the board.  This plan is updated at the annual review meeting each year and then presented at the Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership.

The partnership also reviews the progress of its projects and programmes via an annual report. This is compiled and agreed by the management board, and then presented to the public at the partnership’s AGM.
