North Tyneside Council sought to revamp the Whitley Bay seafront, as part of their coastal regeneration programme.

The brief for the consortium of architects was to breathe new life into the seafront, as well as helping to revitalise the promenade.

Tobermore Fusion block paving, with its striking granite aggregate surface and complementary tones, was used to transform this seafront promenade.

North Tyneside Council sought to revamp the Whitley Bay seafront, as part of their coastal regeneration programme.

The programme aimed to transform the area into a hub of activity for people of all ages, with improvements including new seating, surfacing, and shelters.

Attractive hard landscaping was required to create a promenade along the seafront.

The brief for the consortium of architects was to breathe new life into the seafront as well as helping to revitalise the promenade and its surroundings, enhance the distinctiveness of the town as a visitor destination and improve the visual and physical connectivity in the area.

Tobermore presented a variety of product offerings to the council who were particularly impressed with their Fusion block paving with its striking granite aggregate surface.

Tobermore’s Fusion Rose, Sandstone and Cream complemented the seaside surroundings and transformed the seafront, creating an attractive pedestrian promenade.

"Hartlepool Borough Council’s Engineering Design and Management team undertook the role of Principal Designer and Project Manager for the whole of the works, this public realm scheme is part of the wider Central Promenade Coastal Protection Works. The paving design and specification was also undertaken by HBC’s Principal Landscape Architect. Tobermore’s products look fantastic on the upper promenade."
