Plans submitted to redevelop former Pleasure Island site into tourist destination

The former Pleasure Island could find new life as a tourist destination after plans were submitted to turn the former theme park into a £65.9m holiday site




The former Pleasure Island could soon become a holiday destination

The former Pleasure Island theme park in Cleethorpes, UK, is set to be redeveloped into a holiday site if planning permission is granted following an application.

A consortium made up of several developers is behind the £65.9m (US$79.5m, €74.2m) proposal, which includes 272 holiday lodges, a 148-bedroom hotel with conference centre and casino, and a 74-bedroom hotel with bar and restaurant. Plans also include a Lidl supermarket, food and drink units, leisure and retail, a fishing lake and cycle hire facilities.

“This is a comprehensive redevelopment proposal that will bring an important and well-known local site back into use, allowing several leisure, retail and tourism operators to work closely together across a single scheme,” said Jonathan Wallace, senior developer of consultancy firm Lichfields.

“A key focus of the plans is to create a sense of playfulness and fun for people with retro-style lodges and other exciting aspects, which also provide a big boost for local tourism and the wider economy.”

First opened in May 1993, Pleasure Island closed its doors in 2016 due to a fall in visitor numbers. The site has since fallen into disrepair.

The new holiday and tourism centre, says the proposal, could generate up to £17m (US$20.5m, €19.1m) a year in additional visitor expenditure.
