Investment for 365 days of the year

I think tourism needs to be the icing on the cake, not the mainstay of the local economy. I would look to invest in attracting manufacturing and office/service based industries to the area. This will require investment in roads, business premises and a good team to promote the area and ‘sell it’ to the wider […]

Beach development

More facilities along the wonderful east coast beaches. Sports facilities like sand yachting and volleyball. With showers, sunbeds etc like beaches abroad especially if people holiday in this country more due to Covid changes. Link this with better coastal transport.

Tidy & transport

Get the roads up to scratch especially Roman Bank, tidy the places up then introduce a decent park & ride system that spans from Skegness to Mablethorpe and possibly links to Grimsby & Cleethorpes or reopen the train line in Sutton-on-sea, Mablethorpe & Alford

tour coaches

How about tour coaches such as Shearings to pick up in Sutton on sea as well as Skegness.Any bigger suitable bins for the beaches – wheelie bins if needed. Replace those yellow ones not fit for purpose and more dog bins. New signage re litter, the areas where dogs can and cannot go and make […]

Update

The town needs better fitness facilities that include swimming pool with classes for elderly and disabled Aqua exercise. We also need better health facilities with more community responders and access to dentist within mablethorpe instead of travelling to other towns The roads with seasonal parking restrictions also need updating with surface repairs and road markings […]

Develop attractions around Mablethorpe which would make us a destination rather than just somewhere seasonal. New development plans, For example build a indoor snow slope centre, build a indoor market for local business to promote the local economy. McDonald, kfc, the options are endless

Wooden board walk/beach sand paths that can be easily laid/removed/extended so as to allow access for wheel chairs/push chairs/ease of access for all those who would like to access the beach area but unable to walk or travel over the sand easily. The promenade is excellent but access onto the sand and down to the […]

Bigger brands

I suggest that Mablethorpe is in definite need of some big brand shops to make it a popular destination for all of the year. Shops such as Primark and Peacocks should be put here, and food places like McDonalds, Subway etc. should be included in order to make the town a nice place to be […]

Education

Mabo has lost its heart because we don’t educate young people here …that needs to change. Even if it’s linked to other places like Louth Alford or Skegness.

Sea defences

What about making a large pier or groin that could attract visiting pleasure craft or even be a commercial pier for the wind farms to be serviced from. And what about a seawater swimming pool.

Independent events do not get off the ground when road closures are required along the high street. In order to support independent events, safety of padestrians & cost effective management, add rise & fall electrically operated stainless steel road bollards installed at main road junctions allowing easy segregation of each section of high street (and […]

Business Enterprise Zone (redevelopment of Theddlethorpe Gas Terminal Idea 1) The site has a superb business office, road network, drainage, a range of buildings, street lighting, electrical distribution network in place and much more.

Main Transport Hub + Park & Ride

There are number of potential reuses of the Theddlethorpe Gas Terminal Brownfield site facility that should be evaluated. The site is currently undergoing demolition and no doubt the site tenants have mature plans in place. So, any change or opportunity needs to be discussed and seized upon early this year to prevent the need to […]

Further Education Opportunities

Further education (college & university) is accessed by daily long-distance bus or car journeys. This adds additional pressure, expense, distraction & detachment from the town in which the young people live. This disruption increases the likelihood of those young people then leaving the area with those skills to the detriment of the area. Reuse the […]

Upgrade the Industrial Estate to a Business Park with buildings designed for office working like call centres and telemarketing. IT Orientated Businesses. There is a lot of land there that could be developed and have proper offices built. The office could have the new Gigabit networks that are coming to Mablethorpe included to help increase […]

Seaview Car Park to Quebec Road Car Park

This area is ripe for re-development. The current link path between Seaview Car Park and the grassed area with the skateboard ramps offers little to inspire the visitor. With imaginative re-modelling this area could provide: – Bandstand/small performance stage – Public gardens with year-round interest and sheltered sun traps – Mature dunes retained with viewing […]

I’m reading an article about ‘recycling’ in the Ivory Coast I thought why not here : Green economy Environmental friendly Employment Recycling Factory that is recycling plastics to make bricks to build classrooms. In its first year 30 people are employed and the expectation is this will increase to 300 people in 3 years. The […]

Harbor

Do you think Mablethorpe should build a harbour / marina. That way holiday makers can enjoy it eating their fish and chips etc. It could bring in monies from the boat mooring, stalls etc that could be rented out along it, local boat trips and water sports, local fishing club, a few commercial boats landing […]

A small harbor

A small harbor would bring in tourist as well as been in the keeping of a traditional seaside town. Mablethorpe is geared up for watersports with our local rnli, coastguards seaview ect but nowhere boats can access the water here. Over the years it would also bring in money from boat mooring fees, small stall […]

Mablethorpe Museum & Art Centre

Instead of filling empty retail and other town centre premises with more charity & coffee shops, establish a museum & art centre. There’s a massive amount of local knowledge, photos and memorabilia to get one off the ground. The ‘traditional seaside’ through the ages. Staffed by volunteers (plenty of retirees looking for adventure) and an […]

Education centre of excellence

Idea 1. Make Mablethorpe an educational centre of excellence. Anybody who knows anything about community development and economic regeneration knows not having secondary or further/higher education is a major drawback to growth. Can politicians/ officers acknowledge their were wrong – resurrect the building schools for a better future – all through school and reverse the […]

Gigabit Broadband

Priority for provision of Gigabit broadband, including the 5G network. Promote the town as the upcoming place to re-locate for tech startup businesses.

Improved transport links (buses)

‘Express’ bus routes from major towns & cities such as Lincoln, Nottingham, Leicester, Doncaster, Sheffield, at least during the summer, to get visitors to the town as fast as possible along the woefully inadequate road network. These have operated in the past to Skegness and can work for Mablethorpe. Full 7 day a week services […]

Pedestrianisation Scheme

Find ways to improve the High Street ‘experience’, e.g. Pedestrianised areas between Waterloo Rd / George St & George St/Victoria Road. George St linked to Wellington Road with a pedestrian crossing to cross between the 2 areas. Very like in Lincoln to cross the High St between House of Fraser & Nat West bank (Mint […]

Performing Arts & Culture

We need more than just a cinema and entertainment for holiday makers. Opportunities for experiencing performing arts through live theatre and varied musical genres are extremely sparse without travelling. Repurposing part of the disused Tennyson School would provide appropriate facilities, alongside a ‘learning hub’ as I have outlined in a separate comment.

Infrastructure and High Street names!

It’s simple, invest in infrastructure. This should include new buildings, business, roads, transport links into and for the town. Investment in schools and business is much needed, not only in Mablethorpe but the wider area. Close liaison with “High Street” companies and businesses is needed by local MP’s and business champions to bring these “well […]

Investment needed.

Mablethorpe needs more jobs especially during the winter months not sure what you can attract or what’s empty around enterprise park. There was also a large framing company behind station road that folded. As for infrastructure if it’s big big money I would open a coastal railway line between Grimsby and Skegness with a lot […]
