Tourist centre and shop plans for former Cleethorpes nightclub

A tourist centre and shops could soon replace the currently closed building

A tourist centre and shops could soon replace a former nightclub on the Cleethorpes seafront.

The three-storey plans would replace the Waves public house, flat, public toilet and boathouse on the junction of Sea Road and Central Promenade.

In the plans, the ground floor would be used for tourist information, public toilets and beach safety services.

There is also room on the ground floor for a small shop or food kiosk.

Moving upstairs, the first and second floors could be let out to some more food, drink and entertainment businesses.

Plans submitted to the North East Lincolnshire Council reveal how the building will be smaller, allowing room for a “high-quality outdoor area.”

Existing trees would be retained and the building’s wall would gradually decrease in height as it wraps around.

These visuals have been submitted for planning.

A balcony would also wrap the building on the first floor, with views across the promenade and beach.

Councillors will consider the application in the Spring, but the council has already described the designs as “modern with a curving structure reminiscent of the buildings” which stood in the same place in the 1800s.

ENGIE submitted the plans in partnership with the council and also consulted with the police to look at “designing out crime.”

As previously reported, the Sea Road development was given the go-ahead by councillors as part of a £7.2 million regeneration project.
