More than 2700 people took part in the Think Cleethorpes Masterplan survey, which was recently adopted by North East Lincolnshire Council on the 16th March 2022.

North East Lincolnshire Council (the Council) have commissioned Hemingway Design and GL Hearn to produce a Masterplan for Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire, which sets out a clear vision for the future development and regeneration of the resort and main town centre area over the short, medium and long term.

The masterplan, which includes a range of concept ideas, is relevant for the next 10 years, and shows how Cleethorpes could change to appeal to people living in the resort, and those visiting with development opportunities and visitor attraction at its heart.

“From those looking for a truly brilliant place to live, to set up business, to those who want some down time and checking out the natural environment, Cleethorpes has opportunity for all,” explained Wayne Hemingway MBE, who is leading the design team.

Four character areas that have been identified in the draft Masterplan:

– North Promenade: the vision is for this area to become a vibrant sustainable sea front destination with a progressive unique character, where there are many things to see and do including, independent businesses, cultural activities, and overnight accommodation in zero-carbon beachfront cabins.

– Central Prom and Pier Gardens: this area is to retain and enhance the Victorian heritage but evolve to meet the needs of a modern-day family, including more family friendly activities.

– Cleethorpes town centre: develop a “loop” from the prom through Market Place to St Peter’s Avenue to Sea View Quarter and Alexandra Road. Make changes to reintroduce a functioning market square that can accommodate amongst other things, food festivals and markets. Make sure that there is a recognisable ring of opportunity around the retail “loop” which effectively creates a town centre “promenade” to support the town centre traders.

– South Beach: this area is a natural jewel, but it offers light touch development opportunities, such as renewed beach huts, improved access and pathways, and low-impact activities that can offer health and well-being activities to a wider range of people.

Delivery of the Masterplan will require support from Government and other partners including the Levelling Up Fund and the National Lottery Heritage Fund to name a couple. Following its adoption a comprehensive delivery strategy with clear economic evidence for key priority projects will be brought forward and will include a future Levelling Up Fund (LUF) bid to Government expected in 2022.

North East Lincolnshire is going from strength to strength. Benefiting from numerous funds including the Local Growth Fund, Coastal Communities Fund, and Future High Streets Fund. They are also the first area to benefit from a Town Deal. The Government’s levelling up agenda is a serious plan to ensure that areas like Grimsby and Cleethorpes are at the forefront of the country’s successful future.
