Redcar and Cleveland Council in the UK will next week consider plans for a regeneration project for the town of Redcar.

The £31m ($49.8m) scheme, if approved, will be further developed for submitting an outline planning application next year.

The plans include new swimming and leisure facilities, business spaces, refurbished library accommodation, civic and community suite and a multistorey car park.

The scheme was approved by the council's cabinet in June, according to the Evening Gazette.

Councillor Mark Hannon, cabinet member for economic development, said the project, along with the £75m ($120m) investment in Redcar over the next three years, would be the biggest-ever investment in the town.
