For the outstanding quality of the replacement Edwardian shelters on the West Cliff

West Cliff shelterAwarded to Mr Joe Plant, the Mayor of Scarborough Borough Council for the construction of two new shelters on North Terrace on the West Cliff. The original Grade II Listed Edwardian shelters located there were destroyed in the storms of November 2015. Whitby Civic Society awarded the certificate in recognition of the work, funded by the council, to replace the severely damaged shelters by combining original salvaged features, such as the decorative brackets, cast iron rosettes and timber seating, with replacement components, where necessary, to replicate the originals. The shelters also include features that increase their resistance to damage from future severe weather and they have been secured to concrete plinths. The council was granted listed building consent to replace the original Edwardian structures and intentionally developed a design and build specification to replicate them as closely as possible. The high quality and painstaking construction work was carried out by local company, Rose Engineering. The shelters were completed and craned into place on West Cliff in 2017.
