£57m plans to redevelop old Pleasure Island site in Cleethorpes

Hotel, lodges and shops proposed

By Local Democracy Reporter

There could be hotels, supermarkets, restaurants and holiday lodges at the old Pleasure Island leisure park in Cleethorpes.

Proposals have been submitted by a consortium of developers, believed to cost up to £57 million, if approved once an official planning application is submitted in autumn.

The site on Kings Road in Cleethorpes, which used to be home to Pleasure Island before it closed in 2016, could now be the location for a new 146-bed hotel.

The 23.5 hectare site has plenty of exciting new developments planned.

Plans also show 250 holiday lodges, two restaurants, a new Lidl store of around 1,900 square metres, a petrol filling station and a drive-thru coffee shop.

The holiday lodges will be laid out around the central lake.

As well as this, two leisure units at around 2,920 square metres combined will be proposed, plus a non-food leisure and retail unit.

The development consultancy is being led by Lichfields, and associate director James Cox is excited about the plans.

He said: “The proposals provide a positive response to the Council’s aspirations to deliver all-weather facilities in this resort area of Cleethorpes.

“In addition to enhancing the range of existing retail and leisure provisions accessible to local residents, it would also attract new visitor expenditure to Cleethorpes and generate new job opportunities.”

It is expected to create up to 369 jobs if allowed to go ahead.

The public are being encouraged to comment on the plans via the consultation website here.
