Conservation Management Plan


Conservation Management Plan

 

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

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

We are pleased to report that in 2019 the council in partnership with the SVCIO secured a small amount of additional funding from the Coastal Revival Fund to extend the scope of the Conservation Management Plan to cover the two other valleys of Hazel Grove and Saltburn Gill.

As well as a review of the condition of these areas, this work will also involve a number of surveys which 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.  

Later in 2020 when the second report has been finalised we will be holding consultation events in Saltburn to engage with our Membership, local residents and businesses and other interested parties.
