Demolition begins on Westcliff

Demolition of the Westcliff Estate’s Desert Rat pub, local library and bookmakers will begin today.

The demolition work is part of a £9 million homes and retail regeneration scheme delivered by Ongo and North Lincolnshire Council.

Pete Stones, Ongo’s Director of Regeneration, said: “This is a real milestone in delivering what promises to be an ambitious and exciting transformation.

“It will make such a difference to people living in the area and the wider community.”

North Lincolnshire Council will be carrying out the demolition work.

Cllr Liz Redfern, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “This is the start of the regeneration of Westcliff that will bring about many benefits. It really is an exciting time for the area. We plan to deliver a community hub that will be the heart of the community offering a range of services right on their doorstep.

“There is strong community spirit in Westcliff and residents have shown their support for change. We are working closely with residents to deliver a really positive outcome.”

The regeneration of the Westcliff precinct will include 41 new homes, a large One Stop grocery store, five other shops, a community hub for local clubs and events, and a play park for youngsters. The expected timescales are:

  • Work to start on site for the hub and retail units in October 2016
  • Work to start on site for the housing scheme in January 2017
  • Completion of the hub and retail units in January 2018
  • Demolition of the exiting precinct in March 2018
  • Completion of the housing scheme in March 2018

Completion is on track to unveil the new-look Westcliff precinct area by 2018-2019.
