Yarm High Street

A package of enhancements is planned to the paved areas on Yarm High Street. This will include new paving and seating to support opportunities for outdoor seating and dining and to promote diverse uses there.

First phase of consultation - August 2022

Yarm's residents, businesses and visitors were invited to give their input and ideas on plans for improving public spaces and access to the High Street.

The Council asked people to give their views on ways in which Yarm High Street can be improved as part of the overall allocation from the Government's Levelling Up Fund.

This phase of public consultation found that improving footpaths, reducing street clutter, adding more planting, improving connections to the river and more resting and seat spaces were of high importance to respondents.

Second phase of consultation - December 2022

The Council asked for further views on improvements that reflect the priorities identified in the initial consultation. This includes new paving throughout the High Street, de-cluttering of pavements, new landscaping and seating, additional cycle spaces and new electric vehicle charging points.

These improvements will result in no loss of parking spaces along the High Street.

A range of potential additional improvements have also been developed in addition to the planned works, including more new areas of paving, extended landscaping, seating and larger public spaces, larger cycle storage areas and more electric vehicle charging points. The additional improvements would bring more enhanced and improved facilities but would result in a loss of some parking areas.
