Sea road development site: Your views
In 2019 the council received a £1m grant via the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, which was allocated for the regeneration of Cleethorpes.
The authority has since confirmed that the grant has been spent on demolishing the former Waves nightclub and clearing the site ready for a new build.
A spokesperson added that “the money has also funded changes to the footpaths on Sea Road to make them wider, safer, and more attractive for pedestrians.”
According to one person, on social media “Crossing the road there is now a nightmare since they took the central reservation out.. appears no one thought to add a pedestrian crossing”.
£833,000 was spent on improvements on Sea Road, Cleethorpes, according to a breakdown issued by North East Lincolnshire Council.
One user suggested on social media: “Put entertainment centre there with live music good restaurant AND bars plus plenty green areas to picnic for less well off people plus a play area for kids lots of seating ”
Plans to replace and redecorate the hoardings around the Sea Road site to ‘improve’ the area’s overall appearance have also been confirmed.
Although one user said the boards across the site could be a potential hazard.
“I had to run across that road, the oncoming traffic wasn’t visible due to those boards around the demolition site. It’s an accident waiting to happen”
“I love Cleethorpes but we need the resort back to good for the tourists”.
“A dynamic multi-arts, concert venue, which could host theatre, festivals and put Cleethorpes on the cultural map!”, One user commented.
“A music venue would be great. Rock nights, Soul nights, Disco nights, private hire, the sky’s the limit. You could even host roller disco nights and comedy nights.” Another added.
In the meantime, the council has confirmed plans to replace and redecorate the hoardings around the Sea Road area’s overall appearance appearance of the area.
A spokesperson for the council said: “The hoarding design is being done by a local company, as is the repair and installation.
“The costs aren’t available (commercial in confidence), but were procured following asking several companies for quotes.”
