New drone footage by North Tyneside Council captures how Whitley Bay’s coastline is undergoing a multimillion pound regeneration programme.
The aerial film showcases the extent of the various large-scale projects, which are either currently underway or in the pipeline, taking place as part of the council’s £36m Seafront Master Plan.
The drone flew above the coastline from the southern of end of the promenade all the way to St Mary’s Island, nearly three-and-a-half miles away, capturing the multiple major regeneration projects as well as the breathtaking scenery.
The projects highlighted include:
- the recently-started redevelopment of the former High Point Hotel site
- the Central Lower Promenade scheme where plans to strengthen and safeguard sea defences
- the Spanish City Island site revealing the view from above of the new Premier Inn hotel and restaurant
