We’re a few years into a 10 year, £1 million, Big Lottery funded initiative to invest in North Cleethorpes to make it a better place to live and Work.

This website exists to share our work – and to encourage you to get involved – after all, it’s your area.

First things first

If you’re completely new here, then find out more about what Big Local is and how it works in North Cleethorpes.

Big Local is managed by a local community committee and you can find out the practicalities of how this works here.

We’ve got a number of projects that we fund for the benefit of the area. There’s an index here, some of the completed ones are here, and you can see what’s currently being planned here.  You can view the log of how we have made investment decisions here.

Of course, you can read our news blog, follow us via Facebook or Twitter, or simply explore the website and then get in touch.


There has been a long held ambition to significantly improve the North Beach area at the end of North Promenade to a condition where it can be used as an amenity for local people.  Money has been set aside in the Local Plan for this but progress has been slow.  We’ve got an update this month in our news on the progress of this North Beach Clearance project.
