One-way systems and double yellow lines WILL be coming to Cleethorpes as council plans are approved

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 29 Nov 2018

Plans which will completely change how motorists move around areas of Cleethorpes with the installation of one way systems and double yellow lines have been approved by councillors.

North East Lincolnshire Council's cabinet today gave the green light to plans associated with a £7.2 million regeneration programme for the resort, which will see Albert Road, Osborne Street, part of Cross Street and part of Market Street become one-way streets.

The plans will also see parking arrangements on Alexandra Road and parts of Cross Street changed, as well as alterations made to bus stops and taxi ranks.

The scheme will unlock the Cleethorpes Regeneration Programme, a four-year scheme to improve the "public realm" in High Street, Alexandra Road and Sea View Street.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Coastal Communities Fund and the council's own funds, the plan will also repair and restore historic buildings and deliver a programme of events designed to encourage more visitors to the resort and boost the tourism economy.

A public consultation on the changes is due to start soon, although the council says it has already received a positive reaction from local residents and businesses who are happy to see the investment come to Cleethorpes.

No definite timetable for the work has been released by the council, but it is expected that it would start in October next year, alongside regeneration work on on Sea View Street, High Street and Alexandra Road.

The appearance of those streets is set to be radically transformed with new paving, street furniture and crossing points.

At the cabinet meeting, Councillor Matthew Patrick, portfolio holder for environment, transport and energy, said: "As I have mentioned before, ice cream and fish and chips are a large aspect of our economy here.

"These Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are to be put in place to help drivers move around the resort and grow our economy, and so far businesses and local residents have warmly welcomed the proposals which will now go for further consultation."


High Street, Cleethorpes, is among the areas to be improved in the overall regeneration plan

Councillor Peter Wheatley, portfolio holder for regeneration, housing, skills and assets, said: "The regeneration of Cleethorpes will be going ahead regardless of these TROs, they are just supplementary to the scheme in order to help with traffic management, and allow motorists to move more freely around the resort.

"We have talked this deal to death now, it is time to just get on with it."

Council leader Councillor Ray Oxby said: "This is a clear message to Cleethorpes that we are investing in a resort that is second to none in the country.

"Funding has also been secured for future events and festivals in the resort. This scheme is not just about improving our heritage but tourism in the resort as a whole."
