In late 2017, areas of Skegness foreshore were awarded 'Registered Park and Garden Status' and the area is now classed as Grade II listed.
In February 2018 we announced that we would be working with organisations in Skegness to produce a detailed Masterplan for the Foreshore that would enable the Council and partners to proactively pursue grant funding opportunities to make improvements to the resort, building on the Foreshore's designation as a 'Registered Park and Garden'.
The Masterplan identifies a number of potential projects and uses for underused areas of the Foreshore, including the bowling greens on South Parade as an outdoor flexible event space; the disused Beach Huts near the Pier as pop-up restaurants and the former Festival Pavilion site as a location for a landmark structure.
The Design Code aims to ensure the Council, businesses and partners, have a set standard to work towards for the Foreshore to create a more consistent and appealing appearance to the street scene.
Organisations involved in running Skegness as a successful seaside resort have also helped shape the documents.
