Council considers banning cars from the centre of Cleethorpes

People in Northeast Lincolnshire are being asked to give their views on plans to ban cars from part of Cleethorpes and major transport moves in Grimsby.

The Grimsby Telegraph reports the council wants to hear residents’ views on the bids to Government for multi-million grants to enhance the area and attract more visitors to Cleethorpes and Grimsby town centre. The post-Brexit Levelling Up Fund could see big sums of money earmarked for North East Lincolnshire and planners want people to have their say.

Planners aim to reduce traffic in Cleethorpes Market Place. Residents said they wanted to see space for al-fresco style dining, as well as a regular market and more street trees and greenery.

Initial designs in the Masterplan showed concept designs to pedestrianise the area and provide facilities for leisure use to enhance the offering from local businesses. Further engagement, particularly with businesses, will be carried out should this bid be successful, to fine-tune the designs.
