We want you to help us shape future designs for Cleethorpes’ key projects

General

The work on developing the detailed design for both the Pier Gardens and Market Place schemes in Cleethorpes is underway, with separate consultants being brought in to help the Council realise its ambitions.

The Cleethorpes Masterplan, adopted in 2022, set out the principles of what people want to see in the various areas of Cleethorpes, and followed consultation with local people, visitors and businesses.

The next stage of this is to take those outline plans and talk with people and businesses in the area about the potential of both spaces – what to include, what needs to be left alone, what can and can’t be changed, so that detailed designs can be drawn up within the budget available through the Levelling Up Fund award.

As part of this, there will be a drop in session at Cleethorpes Town Hall on Thursday 29 February from 12 noon to 7pm where you can help shape the future designs.

There is also an online form that you can fill in and give your views – this will be available through the Council’s website on the “Have your say” pages.

The information from this, and subsequent sessions with specialist groups – young people, businesses, and creative individuals, for example, will be pulled together and a design for each space created in the coming months.

Cllr Philip Jackson, leader of the Council, said: “This part of the work is about the people who are going to be using the spaces in the future having their say about what they want to see there.

“For Pier Gardens, for example, it might be that you want space to play, or space to see live music, or even just space to sit and watch the world go by.

“For Market Place, it might be that you want an open space all the time, but practical constraints, like how traffic moves around, or parking provision in and around the area, might mean that we have to think differently about how this could be delivered.

“All in all, we need you to get involved and help us design these areas.”

If you want to get involved, please do either drop in to Cleethorpes Town Hall or get involved online.
