Huge ‘£60m’ Pleasure Island redevelopment ‘extensive’

A lead developer has arisen, for the bold redevelopment of Cleethorpes former Pleasure Island theme park.

The retailer is set to invest a huge £66m fee for the site. German discount retailer Lidl is now the lead developer.

From large profits and ever-performing sales, the supermarket chain has ample investment opportunities for the site. Previously this week, they announced annual profits of £41, 300 percent higher than the previous year.

As part of their formal application, through NELC, rumoured to be next month, Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners, will seek approval, and appease the public, for the redevelopment of the 54-acre site.

There have been revisions to the concept first unveiled before the Covid lockdown.

The proposed number of static caravans – or ‘high quality lodges’ – has increased to 272, and the fuel station has lost out in favour of an amusement arcade.

The application says there may be an adjacent garden centre, and there will two other food and drink outlets plus a Costa drive-thru coffee shop.

A 148-bed hotel with a conference centre, and a casino is showcased, with a 74-bed, restaurant and bar alternatively, or additionally reports say.

The application seeks to retain the lake, for angling, and there will also be a cycle-hire facility.

On the subject of loss of natural features, such as trees and shrubs, Lichfields assures residents that more will be planted.

They said: “Tree retention, extensive new tree planting of native species, wild flora and wetland planting will combine to provide a coherent, dramatic and natural setting for all parts of the scheme.

“A network of cycle and pedestrian routes will provide safe and convenient access to all of the proposed uses across the site whilst improving the strong connecting link with the seafront.

“Natural play areas will be set around the lodge areas, with access provided via meandering pedestrian routes along grass paths mown through meadow areas.”
