Consultancy appointed for £3.8m park restoration

Casella Stanger to tranform South Shields' South Marine Park

South Tyneside Council has appointed London-based Casella Stanger to deliver the £3.8m restoration of South Marine Park in South Shields, Tyne and Wear. The park is part of a 4km recreational corridor along south Tyneside’s coast. Casella Stanger, which is part of multi-national service company Bureau Veritas, will re-introduce the bandstand, restore the terrace and lake, resurface footpaths, plant new trees and shrubs and install a children’s play area, lighting and street furniture. The Heritage Lottery Fund has earmarked £3.8m for the project, as well as £116,600 in development funds for further project planning. The total project is a £5.5m plan to regenerate the borough. The stage-two application, which will take the project to detailed design, will be submitted in July with implementation starting at the end of 2007.
