Skegness Town Council
Tower Pavilion Project Consultation

August 2018

1. Current Position

Skegness Town Council remains committed to replacing the dilapidated pavilion building in Tower Gardens, consultation took place late last year on the principles of the project and the associated budget, 86% of the respondents were in favour of the project principles. Council then undertook a feasibility study and decided to self-fund a scheme to create a community building on this site to include function room, tea room, accessible toilets (including hoist) and provide a small office space for the Town Council. The budget for this project is approx. £1.5 million.

2. Purpose of this consultation

The Town Council unanimously agreed to move forward with the design stage of the project at an extraordinary meeting in July 2018. The Council wants to make sure the building is designed in a way that it is functional and accessible to the community. The Consultation will run through August 2018 and the Council wants your feedback on how you might use the community building so that this can be taken into consideration when drawing up the architectural plans during the design phase and making future decision on the use of the space. For the project to be successful the Council needs your ideas, feedback, comments and support.
