Town Council Speaks in Support of Whitby Pavilion

Whitby Town Council has resolved to take all reasonable steps to secure the continuing operation of the Whitby Pavilion for the benefit of Whitby.

The town council has a concern for the continuing operational stability of Whitby Pavilion as an important community asset, following the announcement on 6 July by SIV, the operator, that Whitby Pavilion was likely to remain 'mothballed' and that the company had started a process of consulting staff about potential redundancies.

Councillors have taken the decision to write to Scarborough Borough Council to ask what actions which the borough council is taking in relation to Whitby Pavilion in response to the operational performance of its contractor SIV.

Speaking after the town council meeting, the Town Mayor of Whitby, Councillor Linda Wild, said, "The town council has a legitimate concern for the future of Whitby Pavilion. It's an important community asset. We want to show our support for the Pavilion's staff, for the local users of the building and for the important part it plays to Whitby's visitor economy. We stand prepared to take any reasonable steps to support the community in Whitby in assuring the future of the Whitby Pavilion and in working with the borough council to do so." » Less
