Nic Dakin MP

Standing up for Local People

Westcliff Development


Back in 2010 when I was first elected as Scunthorpe’s MP one of the things I hoped to influence for the better was to do something about Westcliffe Precinct.  In its heyday this had been a thriving part of the local community but latterly it had become run down and neglected.  Too often local people told me they didn’t feel safe and secure in its vicinity.  So I called meetings with North Lincolnshire Homes (Ongo) and North Lincolnshire Council to try to get them to work together to bring about improvements.  Local councillors Len Foster, Pauline Carlisle and Sue Armitage were always very keen to support me in pressing the social housing provider and the Council to come up with a plan.  The Westcliffe Drop In Centre and other local groups were also keen to see changes for the better.  

I am pleased that things are now starting to happen and we can see some actual movement on the ground with the following timetable:

  • Temporary building completed - January 2016
  • Temporary building open - February 2016
  • Demolition of existing Youth Centre - February/March2016
  • Decision on planning applications due
  • Hub and retail units - 9th March 2016 planning committee
  • Housing - 6th April 2016 planning committee
  • Start on site (Hub and retail) - Autumn 2016
  • 1st phase of housing start on site -  July 2016
  • Complete on site (Hub and retail) - Autumn 2017
  • Demolition of precinct - Autumn/Winter 2017
  • Hub and retail open - late 2017
  • Completion of phase 1 housing - March 2018
