Whitby Town Is Falling Down

Whitby Town Is Falling Down

Whitby Town Is literally falling down whilst Scarborough Borough Council stand by and watch. Our beautiful town, loved by so many from across the UK and worldwide, has been subject to underinvestment and a defunct repair and upkeep policy from Scarborough Borough Council that many parts of the towns heritage (our heritage) finds itself on the brink of collapse into the sea.

Recent emails to Real Whitby from local campaigner Tom Broderick have highlighted how dredging may have caused the collapse of the harbour wall piling of the east side harbour close to the swing bridge.
