Second public workshop to progress masterplan for Filey

The second in a series of public workshops to progress a town masterplan plan for Filey will take place on the evening of Tuesday 19 April.


After the success of the first workshop last month, this next session will be another chance for residents and businesses of the town to hear the results of the consultation survey carried out last summer, which asked people where and how money should be invested in Filey during the next ten years.


Possible solutions to the issues raised in the survey will be up for discussion under three broad themes - public realm changes, the provision of public services and community based improvement projects that could be taken forward.


The workshop will take place at the Evron Centre on John Street from 6.30pm to 8pm. Visitors to the town are also welcome to attend.

It will be facilitated by Filey residents and colleagues from Scarborough Borough Council.


People are welcome to turn up on the evening, but if possible they should register their interest by emailing zoe.kelsall@scarborough.gov.uk.


Further public engagement to reach out to residents and visitors will take place in the coming weeks through a programme of in person and online activities and events.

The progress towards a town investment plan for Filey is being driven by the needs and aspirations of local people, working in partnership with Filey Town Council and Scarborough Borough Council, and playing a direct part in shaping the future of their town.


Marilyn Anthony, who is helping to lead the Filey masterplan steering group said:

“Our daytime workshop last month was well attended and the feedback from those who attended was really encouraging.

“We’re holding this month’s session in the evening to allow people who have work or other commitments during the day to attend.

“The feedback from both workshops will be added to the responses of around 400 people, who took part in the consultation survey last year, to help us determine the town’s aspirations for future improvements to infrastructure and services.”
