Aerial Footage Showcases the Regeneration of Whitley Bay

Stunning drone footage has captured how Whitley Bay's coastline is being transformed as part of a multi-million pound regeneration programme.  

The captivating aerial film showcases the full extent of the various large-scale projects, which are either currently underway or in the pipeline, taking place as part of North Tyneside Council’s £36m Seafront Master Plan. This includes the regeneration of Spanish City designed by ADP. 

The drone flew above the coastline from the southern of end of the promenade all the way to St Mary’s Island, nearly three-and-a-half miles away, capturing the multiple major regeneration projects as well as the breathtaking scenery.

Elected Mayor of North Tyneside Norma Redfearn said: “This aerial footage is a fantastic way of showcasing how we, alongside our partners, are transforming and improving the coastline as part of our ambitious multimillion pound Master Plan.

“Viewers will get a unique insight into the scale of regeneration and it’s a wonderful opportunity to see all of this work taking place from above while also being able to enjoy the spectacular views offered by our beautiful coastline.

“These various projects will boost the borough as a whole and truly revitalise Whitley Bay while adding to its growing reputation as a unique visitor destination where people are proud to live, work and visit. I am really excited to see the work progress and am sure the end product will prove something we can all be proud of.”
