Plans to transform a vacant former casino at Teesside Park have been lodged this month.

A new proposal concerning new lights, signs and cladding were submitted to Middlesbrough Council for the former Rainbow Casino site on February 13.

Contravision vinyl Union Jack graphics are planned to be installed on the entrance and exit doors of the building.

Meanwhile, existing fascia cladding is set be overcladded using new material.

A new 3D illuminated and simplified logo will be emblazoned on the front of the store.

The plans said: “The new signage is of high-quality construction to ensure that its appearance does not degrade over its design life.

“The backlit and trough lights use LED bulbs for low energy.

“The purpose of the illumination is to ensure that the facility is clearly identified to the customers but not create a visual noise that would detract from the quality of the area.”

This comes after a Teesside Park spokesperson confirmed Ninja Warrior will be “coming to the centre” and added they will be releasing more details soon.

Speaking at the time, a Teesside Park spokesperson said: "We can confirm we’re in talks with Ninja Warrior to join the centre and will share more information when we’re able to."

Ninja Warrior has courses in areas such as Edinburgh, Leeds, Swansea, and Sheffield.
