Public Consultation – Withernsea Promenade Improvement Plan

Withernsea_PublicConsultation_HullDailyMail_June 2014

We are working in Withernsea – East Yorkshire – with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership to create a renewed vision and improvement plan for the seafront promenade.

We run a public consultation in Withernsea on Saturday the 14th, which has been covered by the Hull Daily Mail and the Holderness Gazette. (Image above by Peter Harbour from Hull Daily Mail).

We had a successful day on the Promenade talking to visitors and residents and we also had the opportunity to collaborate with a group of young people from Withernsea Children and Family Action group, who undertook a questionnaire survey as part of their Participatory Appraisal Course.
