Grimsby Town Centre Masterplan 2022 – 2030

In June 2020 the Council commissioned Arup to develop a detailed town centre Masterplan for Grimsby with the key objective of guiding plans for the investment and delivery of transformational projects for the town over the next 10 years.

The town has progressed a number of exciting projects following its early, 2018 pilot Town Deal with Government and the Masterplan now provides the strategy for the next stage of the town’s development. It’s evidence base has been used to prioritise the town centre projects for delivery up to 2025/26, with the Towns Fund programme being the route to this delivery. The Masterplan can be found on the Town Deal page.

In June 2022, in addition the to successful Cleethorpes bid, North East Lincolnshire Council submitted two further Levelling Up Fund bids to Government, one for Grimsby (PDF, 1MB) and one for Transport (PDF, 3MB). The Grimsby LUF bid was successful.

Greater Grimsby Town Deal

In 2018 Grimsby secured a ground-breaking pilot Town Deal with government which described its plans for major investment for the town.

The deal lead by the Greater Grimsby Board and backed by public and private investors has unlocked millions of pounds worth of development for the town.

More information can be found on the Town Deal page.

Cleethorpes Masterplan: Levelling Up Bid

Plans to continue with the reinvention of Cleethorpes have taken a major step forward as North East Lincolnshire Council secured more than £18.4m of Levelling Up grant monies for the resort.

The Cleethorpes bid incorporated schemes identified in the Cleethorpes Masterplan Business Case (ANNEX 1 LUF2) [951KB, PDF] as important strategic development locations, and deliverable within the timescales.

The area of focus for the work is Market Place, Sea Road and Pier Gardens, which were three initial projects identified in the “Think Cleethorpes” Masterplan, developed alongside the local community to deliver the projects that they wanted to see.

South Humber Industrial Investment Programme (SHIIP)

SHIIP has delivered major infrastructure investments, industrial sites and employment creation in North East Lincolnshire, UK.

The programme is focused on major enterprise zone sites, located on the south bank of the Humber estuary. Working in partnership, North East Lincolnshire Council and EQUANS are delivering SHIIP over a period of 5-10 years.

There are three elements to the project designed to aid businesses in their relocation or growth along North East Lincolnshire’s South Humber Bank:

  1. A fully serviced, 64-hectare Business Park has been created, sited between Immingham and Grimsby., This is in a prime location and is one of several Enterprise Zones (EZ).
  2. A new Humber Bank Link Road, a £8m highway has been built to provide a vital link between the ports of Grimsby and Immingham, cutting journey time, providing an alternative to other busier routes and opening up undeveloped land, which lies within the EZ.
  3. An Ecological Mitigation Site – Cress Marsh, has been developed. This is 40ha of wetland, ‘offsets’ industrial development within the SHIIP area. The site promotes economic growth whilst conserving the environment and has the added benefit of already being “set-aside” and established to offset any development plans. A second mitigation site Novartis Ings has also been developed.
