BIG LOCAL NORTH CLEETHORPES
Working to bring together the talent, skill and ambition of local organisations and individuals, in order identify the needs of local people, and take action in response to those needs
WELCOME TO BIG LOCAL NORTH CLEETHORPES
We’re about four 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.
We’re helping to regenerate buildings, places and open spaces. We’re supporting local people young and old. We’re encouraging participation through events and activities. We’re encouraging ideas and supporting those who want North Cleethorpes to develop,
This website exists to share our work – and to encourage you to get involved – after all, it’s your area.
First things first
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.
Part of a Plan
– The development of a Cycle Hub at Cleethorpes Station gets underway this year.
– Investment has just been agreed for the Royal Naval Association building to support the many veterans across the area.
– The Cleethorpes Youth Club Hangout is now going well and supporting young people in the area.
– Summer has arrived and there are now new planters on North Prom to make the area look cheerful.
– The mural at Poplar Road Fire Station has now been completed by local artists.
– we’re updating our pages about projects addressing parks and open spaces, so find out more here.
All our projects past, present and future can be found here and of course follow our news blog for all the latest updates.
Mural at Poplar Road Fire Station created by local artists and supported by BLNC. Unveiled March 2018.
The Cleethorpes Cycle Hub opened for business on 23th March 2019 after a long rebuild process. This is an exciting new venture for Cleethorpes and BLNC is very pleased to have been able to contribute to the project – our funding paid for an access ramp to the station concourse.

Apply for funding
Big Local does have funding each year that can be made available for projects that benefit the local community of North Cleethorpes. Whether you are a voluntary group, charity, social business or even an individual, then we work with you to decide how best to allocate funding.
Your project will need to have a clear benefit to the North Cleethorpes area, will need to have evidence of a need, will ideally be able to draw in additional funding or volunteer time, and you will need to be able to present this to the Big Local committee.
Read more about the actual application process here. Take a look at the log of our investment decisions to see what we’ve already invested in. Look back through all our projects to see how we’ve already invested. Perhaps come along to our weekly meeting to meet us and discuss your ideas. Ultimately, get in touch.
If you’ve got a project that benefits the area and you think is ready for consideration by the Big Local North Cleethorpes Partnership then read more about the application process here.
