Lowestoft

Coastal Team

Lowestoft is the most easterly town in the UK and is a popular seaside destination, but needs to respond to the changes in the leisure and tourism market in order to enable economic growth.  The Lowestoft Coastal Community Team was set up in 2015 and has focused on developing and delivering a Seafront Strategy that ensures the seafront is an attractive high-quality and exciting environment for residents, businesses and visitors throughout the year. The team’s aim is to enhance the existing built and natural assets and to focus on a number of key projects in both the North and South Beaches that will serve as a catalyst for regeneration.

The North Beach will benefit from the creation of the East of England Park, a contemporary park and interactive community space celebrating the area’s maritime heritage, and which is being developed alongside the local community. This includes Lowestoft Ness, Britain’s most easterly point, which has the potential to become a visitor destination and the start of trails and events. This project was recently successful in attracting £1m Coastal Community Fund and will be delivered by 2019.

The vision for the South Beach is being supported by the designer Wayne Hemingway who is working with the Coastal Community Team to put the area back on the map for regional, national and European visitors. Wayne is looking at the redevelopment of a number of assets on the South Beach which could create a step change in the local economy.

Both North and South Beach areas are linked by the England Coast Path, which opens in 2018.  They are also supported by our Great Places project which will be launch in September  2017, and will  focus on culture and heritage in the area.
