Skegness Town Council has received confirmation of approval to borrow £1,460,000 for the development of a Community Building in Tower Gardens on the site of the former Pavilion.

The asset transfer from East Lindsey District Council also nears completion.

Steve Larner Town Clerk said "We will be pressing ahead with this straight away and expect to sign contracts for both the asset transfer from East Lindsey District Council and the development of the Community Building in the next few days. Council have always been very clear about what they wanted to achieve and with the fantastic support from the team here, we have been able to deliver the Council's ambition.

This is just the beginning though, there is still a huge amount to do developing the new building and much to be done in Tower Gardens which is the first asset to be transferred. Over the coming weeks and months, we intend to start by giving Tower Gardens a thorough clean and tidy up. We will also be turning over beds that have not been touched recently ready for some extra planting later in the year. We have agreed with East Lindsey District Council (ELDC) that they will continue to manage and maintain the toilets using their contractor. We have and will continue to work closely with ELDC on the asset transfer to ensure its success".

For those who want to organise community and family events, you will now need to contact the Town Council rather than East Lindsey District Council. Details of how to seek permission for events can be found on our website www.skegness.gov.uk
