Conservation Management Plan


In 2018, with funding from Historic England and Redcar and Cleveland Council, we  commissioned consultant Landscape Architects to produce a Conservation Management Plan for the Saltburn Registered Park and Garden, currently known as Saltburn Valley Gardens. 

This plan has given us a greater understanding of the history and significance of what were once called the Saltburn Pleasure Gardens. The work will identify management policies and actions that will safeguard the future use and enjoyment of this historic landscape for all.

In 2019 Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, in partnership with the SVCIO, secured additional funding from the Coastal Revival Fund to extend the scope of the Conservation Management Plan to cover Hazel Grove and Saltburn Gill. As well as a review of the condition of these valleys, this work will inform a 5 to 10 year action plan for preservation and conservation works and improvements in the three valleys.

The two parts of the Conservation Management Plan will act both to identify risks and opportunities for the valleys as well as supporting capital funding bids in the future. In the shorter term it can be used to attract much-needed resources to arrest decline or improve the management of the site, and to inform local projects involving the community. 


In 2020 when the second report was finalised we held consultation events in Saltburn to engage with our membership, local residents and businesses and other interested parties.
