Demolition work to begin on former Cleethorpes nightclub

Work is due to start on the demolition of the former nightclub on Sea Road on Tuesday 24 March ahead of the construction of a new building as part of the wider regeneration of Cleethorpes.

The former Waves nightclub, adjacent toilet block and the small kiosk will be pulled down to make way for a new building that will house commercial space as well as visitor facilities, modern toilets and a Changing Places facility, beach safety and tourist information services.

A building, which is fit for the modern age but reflects Cleethorpes’ Art Deco past, will replace the former venue.

Soft market testing is underway to determine the best use of the commercial space in the building.

As part of the works, a small events space will also be created within Pier Gardens as part of the development.

Works already underway include the removal of the central reservation and re-laying of the footway in Sea Road.

This ambitious project is being supported by £1m funding from the Local Growth Fund, secured by the Humber LEP as part of the Government’s commitment to the Northern Powerhouse, with the remainder from the Council’s capital and Local Transport Plan funds.

The outline plans for the new building were approved at the Cabinet meeting in December last year. Since then, further detailed designs for the new build have been completed, and are now in the planning system.

Cllr John Fenty, Cabinet member for regeneration, said: “We have been doing a lot of work in Cleethorpes, securing millions of pounds of external funding to help improve the resort for the benefit of visitors, local people and businesses alike. I’m pleased we’ve got to the next stage of the works for the Sea Road development. The existing building is currently an eyesore, and it will be good to have it replaced with such an iconic building in such a prominent position.”

Lord Haskins, Chair of the Humber LEP, said: “We’re pleased to see work continue on the next phase of this project, which has been supported by £1m from the Local Growth Fund. This work will help to enhance the seafront in Cleethorpes, which is already an attractive tourist destination, and encourage even more visitors to enjoy a trip to the town.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs just £27.55 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
