Skegness and Mablethorpe events to showcase Town Deal investment

People are being invited to find out more about the multi-million-pound investment plans for Skegness and Mablethorpe at two events taking place this December.

The Connected Coast Town Deal Board is set to host its first ever AGM and Exhibition events which will provide people with the opportunity to learn more about the transformational projects that are being delivered for both towns and that are set to bring far-reaching and significant benefits.

The plans, which include a new ‘economic game changer’ learning facility for Skegness and Mablethorpe’s flagship Campus for Future Living project, are being made possible thanks to the Government Town Deal funding as well as match investment. In 2021, Skegness secured £24.5m and Mablethorpe £23.9m in Town Deal funding.

Now, people can hear about the plans and progress to date at the AGM and Exhibition events which will be held 3pm-5pm on Thursday 8th December at U@E, Embassy Theatre, Skegness, and 3pm-5pm on Thursday 15th December at the Dunes Complex, Mablethorpe.

At both events, there will be an opportunity to find out about the plans and see visuals for the projects, that also include Skegness Foreshore and the Colonnade at Sutton on Sea, as well as Town Centre improvements in both towns. The Connected Coast annual reports for Skegness and Mablethorpe for the last year will be presented at the events.

Chris Baron, chair of Connected Coast Town Deal Board, said: “Through this huge investment, we have a once in a generation opportunity to bring significant improvements for both Skegness and Mablethorpe.

“Together with our partners, we are progressing well with the projects, and in the coming months and years we are set to see real change happening on the ground.

“The investments and projects will maximise Skegness and Mablethorpe’s potential, and will benefit both local people and visitors to our area alike. We are really looking forward to both these events, and we hope that people can join us and find out more about the exciting plans for our connected coast.”

Councillor Craig Leyland, leader of East Lindsey District Council, said: “Through collaboration, major projects are soon to be delivered on the Lincolnshire coast which will bring improvements, new opportunities and support the health and wellbeing of our residents across East Lindsey.

“It is a very exciting time as many of these projects head to the delivery phase and I hope as many people as possible will attend the AGM and exhibition events to see for themselves the benefits these projects will bring to the district.”

Anyone wishing to attend can book their place by emailing or by calling 01507 854402.
