East Riding of Yorkshire Council has invited bids for the purchase and development of Hilderthorpe Road Coach and Car Park, one of the key development sites within the Bridlington Town Centre Area Action Plan (AAP). The site is approximately 1.39 hectares (3.43 acres) and has frontages to the public highway on both its southern and eastern boundaries.
The AAP was adopted as planning policy by the council in 2013 and it is expected that the development of this site will make a significant contribution to the regeneration of the town centre. Development guidance for the site has been prepared by the council and is available to download below.
Bids must be submitted by completing a Bid Submission Form which is available on request.
The closing date for submission of bids is noon 25 October 2017.

The council is investing £11M - with assistance from the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership - in Phase 2 of the Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan. Currently under construction, this is a major regeneration scheme to improve vehicle and pedestrian access around Bridlington’s town centre and includes Hilderthorpe Road being widened to provide a three-lane carriageway, one lane in each direction and a right-turn lane, to allow easier and quicker traffic flow. The scheme also includes the realignment of Beck Hill and a new bridge over the Gypsey Race to improve town centre access. Working closely with Network Rail and Northern Rail, a further phase of improvements with paving and landscaping works to enhance the appearance of the approach to Bridlington train station and its plaza will also be undertaken from October 2017 to September 2018. This will include new car parking, a drop off area, short stay parking, disabled parking, a large bus lay-by, a new taxi rank and decorative lighting. For further details click here.
The council is also investing £1.1M - with assistance from the European Structural and Investment Fund - in Phase 1 of the ‘Gypsey Race Park’ public realm improvements. Phase 1 of the park, immediately to the south of the development site, will be constructed from November 2017 to August 2018. This will see the river, its banks and the surrounding area cleared of debris before being landscaped and planted. New paths and seating will be created for people to sit and enjoy the green space and the area will be managed for local wildlife. For further details click here.
