Cleethorpes Regeneration Programme – A major £6.7M programme for key areas in Cleethorpes
Over the past year £6.7million of external funding has been secured to invest in the resort over the next three years.
In March 2017 CoastNEL was awarded nearly £4million from the Coastal Communities Fund to help deliver a number of key projects in Cleethorpes to enhance key areas, provide new facilities and deliver events in the resort.
Key elements of the project include:
- £3.3million which is earmarked to be spent improving the public realm and introducing public art at key arrival sites, the promenades and in the historic town centre streets. This work will build on the £2.77million Townscape Heritage programme due to start in 2018.
- £332K of funding will be spent on marketing and exciting new events to enhance the current programme and help extend the season into an all-year-round tourist destination.
- Plans to transform a beach-front kiosk into an eye-catching entertainment venue.
- A visitor economy specialist who will deliver business support in the form of coaching, mentoring and advice to businesses on customer service, technology, business planning, diversification and marketing.
The CoastNEL team who successfully led the bid, is a partnership of local business people, arts, heritage and tourism groups and the local authority.
