Public invited to Skegness and Mablethorpe events

Lincolnshire residents are being invited to two special events showcasing the multi-million pound improvements being delivered for Skegness and Mablethorpe.

Connected Coast exhibition events will take place on Friday 17 November at Haven Holiday Park in Skegness, and on Friday 24 November at Mablethorpe Library.

Both events will provide an opportunity for people to drop in between 2pm – 5.30pm to find out more about the projects – including the Campus for Future Living in Mablethorpe and the planned Skegness Learning Campus – that will bring huge benefits for both towns.

During the events, attendees will be able to meet project leads and board members, and watch a film that highlights the progress so far, and what is still to come.

People will also have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ask questions about the projects. The drop-in sessions will be followed by a presentation by the Chair of Connected Coast Chris Baron and the opportunity for attendees to ask questions from 5.30pm – 6.30pm.

Anyone who wishes to attend the presentation can book their place by emailing or by calling 01507 613048.

Connected Coast Town Deal was set up in 2020 to oversee the delivery of the Towns Fund investment and projects for Skegness and Mablethorpe.

Chris Baron said: “In 2021, £24.5M was announced for Skegness and £23.9M for Mablethorpe, which together with match funding, means both towns are benefitting from investment that totals around £86M.

“This, coupled with other funding coming into the district, represents a once in a generation opportunity for the area, a really unique chance to create meaningful and sustainable improvements that will have a transformational impact within our communities.

“The events that we are holding on 17 and 24 November will allow us to share with local people more information about the investment and the projects, and what it means for them.

“I do hope people can join us, and I look forward to sharing an update on what’s been achieved so far and what’s happening next as we work towards realising aspirational ambitions for these much loved and iconic coastal towns.”

Cllr Craig Leyland, Leader of East Lindsey District Council, said: “The events in Skegness and Mablethorpe will be a real celebration of how much has been achieved collaboratively since both towns received the backing from the Government through Town Deal funding.

“It is a very exciting time for the Lincolnshire coast with the Campus for Future Living and the Station Leisure and Learning Centre really taking shape in Mablethorpe and with Skegness projects progressing well to bring new opportunities and investment to our coastline.

“I hope local people will come along to the exhibition events, ask questions and be part of the Town Deal journey.”
