Work to regenerate Lowestoft’s South Beach and seafront area is progressing well, with several key projects now underway.
Southwold Town Council, in partnership with the Southwold Coastal Community Team, has been awarded £15,000 from the Coastal Revival Fund to develop a vision for the restoration and regeneration of Southwold Boating Lake.
Representatives from local businesses, community groups and charities are being asked to think about ideas to raise the profile of Lowestoft.
Work to demolish a row of beach huts in Lowestoft which were closed due to safety concerns is set to begin next week.
Sustrans, the charity that’s making it easier for people to walk and cycle, is working with Waveney District Council on an exciting new project. They’re investigating the viability of improving ‘access for all’ over the Normanston Railway Bridge.
Local business owners are invited to find out how they could get involved in a major new festival taking place in Lowestoft next year.
Hudson Architects, a Norwich based award-winning architectural practice, have been appointed by Waveney District Council to bring forward an exciting redevelopment opportunity within Lowestoft town centre. The former Post Office building was purchased by the Council earlier this year with the intention of boosting regeneration in the town centre. The Council is keen to realise the opportunity this site has to offer and bring a much-loved building back into use. The building is a key redevelopment site within the town centre; its occupation will increase footfall in the surrounding area and provide much needed residential accommodation.
Plans for a brand new and exciting festival for Lowestoft, attracting up to 20,000 people to the town and celebrating local and international culture have been given a boost this week.
