Consultation for £65m redevelopment in Cleethorpes begins

A two-week consultation has begun looking at plans for the £65m redevelopment of the former Pleasure Island site in Cleethorpes.

Supermarket chain Lidl have proposed transforming the 54-acre site into a new holiday and tourism centre.

This will feature 272 1950s-style holiday lodges, a 148-bedroom hotel and conference centre.

The plans also include various retail and leisure units, a family-oriented indoor gaming arcade, a new fishing lake, cycle hire facilities, and food and drink units available for the thousands of people expected to visit each year.

Senior director at planning and development consultancy Lichfields, Jonathan Wallace, said: “This is a comprehensive redevelopment proposal that will bring an important and well-known local site back into use, allowing several leisure, retail and tourism operators to work closely together across a single scheme.

“A key focus of the plans is to create a sense of playfulness and fun for people with retro style lodges and other exciting aspects, which also provide a big boost for local tourism and the wider economy.

“We are consulting with local people, interested parties and stakeholders to showcase the many benefits the project will bring and very much look forward to hearing from them.”

The redevelopment is expected to create over 600 full and part time jobs and could bring £17m per year to the area.
