  • 6. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCAL The statistical area of South Teesside is made up largely from two local authority areas: Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland Disposable income in all of South Teesside is calculated at £12605 per head. That is £3429 less than the national average of £16034 East Cleveland is somewhere in the lowest category between £6000 - £11999 …………………………………… The North East £13329 The South East £17610 London £20238
  • 7. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCAL East Cleveland is predominantly rural in character with settlements which grew from the extraction of ironstone during the 19th century. The mines operated as drift or as shaft mines until the last closures about 50 years ago. The iron and steel industry based on Teesside grew from the extraction of Cleveland Ironstone. After the closure of the ironstone mines opportunities for work were predominantly in Iron & Steel production at British Steel’s Lackenby Works on Teesside. Shift work was also available in the chemical industry at ICI Wilton on Teesside. Public transport was available to these main sites on Teesside. Car ownership remained low compared to other areas of the UK. Employment and travel to work
  • 8. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCAL One of the main employers remaining within the East Cleveland area is Tata Steel at Skinningrove whose rolling mills produce special profiles not made elsewhere. Adjacent is a Caterpillar plant which collaborates with Tata to make track shoe sections for off road construction equipment.
  • 9. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCAL The other significant employer, Cleveland Potash, operates the deepest mine in Europe at Boulby. Over a million tons of potash for fertilizers and more than half a million tons of rock salt are produced each year by the 800+ workers.
  • 10. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCAL Transport East Cleveland has one of the lowest car ownership rates in the Tees Valley. The availability and affordability of transport influences access to: • employment • training opportunities (eg colleges) • essential services (eg hospitals, medical care) • shopping opportunities (eg local, supermarket, ‘home delivery’) • entertainment and social events (eg cinema) Their level of access depends on where services are located. The range of opportunities and choices that people have in connecting with jobs, services and friends and families depends on where they live. The East Cleveland Villages plan identified access to services, employment and training as main priorities.
  • 11. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCAL Bus services continue to reduce if they are not commercially viable, leaving a gap funding requirement from local authority. Buses are open to market forces and services may be cut further, jeopardising the services if patronage is not increased. Population sizes are low in some settlements, therefore there is a risk that public transport services won’t be commercially viable.
  • 12. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES MINIBUS The partnership purchased a minibus from a doctors’ surgery who no longer wished to retain it as they moved from Trust status to being a Commissioning Group. The vehicle can accommodate wheelchairs. This has been placed at Skinningrove Link Up to serve all of East Cleveland. It is be managed by the Tees Valley Transport Brokerage.
  • 13. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES MINIBUS The community transport network in East Cleveland is being supported by funding mini-bus groups to supplement local services. It is hoped that a volunteer driver from each village will undergo ‘Midas’ training to increase the availability to the communities.
  • 14. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCAL Major employment centres – Redcar, Middlesbrough, port, petrochemicals within commuting distance and potash and steelmaking in close proximity. Sustainable travel not seen by many as a viable alternative to the private car. Poor accessibility from major routes into some outlying settlements. Low car ownership across the area. Topography is not always conducive to cycling and walking. No rail service (with exception of Saltburn) Rail freight infrastructure exists between Saltburn and Boulby
  • 15. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCAL East Cleveland Villages partnership will work with other organisations, housing associations, local councils, service providers and local community groups.
  • 16. EAST CLEVELAND VILLAGES BIG LOCA OUR VISION FOR EAST CLEVELAND Transport East Cleveland will have an integrated transport system. Transport timetables will allow maximum access to work, education and training, essential services, leisure facilities and tourist venues. Transport will be available, affordable and sustainable.
