Welcome to the Neighbourhood Development page for Cleethorpes
Your Co-ordinator: John Manton
The Neighbourhood Development Area of Cleethorpes is made up of Sidney Sussex, Croft Baker and Haverstoe wards.
Cleethorpes originally consisted of 3 ancient villages or Anglo-Saxon ‘thorpes’: Oole, Itterby and Thrunscoe, part of a wider parish called Clee. As late as 1801 the census reveals a very small population of 284. The1820s saw the first developments of Cleethorpes as a holiday resort, with sea-bathing and the taking of medicinal waters becoming fashionable.
The resort expanded following the linking of the town by railway in the late 1800s with the industrial towns of Yorkshire. Cleethorpes Pier opened in 1873 and the promenade in 1885.
Today Cleethorpes has a population of approximately 32,000 people with residential areas of mixed tenure of private and private rented properties. Cleethorpes continues to compete as an east coast holiday resort and boasts 3 promenades, an attractive boating lake, a theme park, a range of caravan parks, hotels and holiday accommodation.
There are 3 Electoral Wards in Cleethorpes; Croft Baker, Sidney Sussex and Haverstoe and each ward has a forum for residents to attend and bring forward ward issues or get involved in ward activities.
