Design’s to reinvigorate Lowestoft’s seafront, have been finalised for the next phase of £4.9 million improvements.

The development at Jubilee Parade, will include a two-storey café, concession units, public toilets, a Changing Places facility, and extensive improvements to the surrounding seafront area.

To enable residents and local stakeholders to view the designs and proposed project timeline, events will be held at the East Point Pavilion on Wednesday 26th July between 10am and 6pm and at Eastern Edge between 10am and 1pm. Members of the project team will be available at both locations to answer questions and talk through the improvements. 

Councillor Toby Hammond, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for Economic Development and Transport said“Our recent event offering people the chance to view designs for Royal Plain, Royal Green and the South Quay Wharf areas was very well attended, and we look forward to seeing people again to talk about the exciting improvements planned at Jubilee Parade. In combination with other projects, this new development will help Lowestoft seafront become a destination for visitors and somewhere for residents to enjoy and be proud of. 

“These improvements are part of a programme of major regeneration works underway in Lowestoft, all of which aim to enhance the town for the benefit of residents as well as attracting visitors and businesses. These plans include the repurposing of the former Post Office and vacant station building, redevelopment of the Council’s current Customer Services Centre and the Battery Green car park as well as the construction of the Gull Wing bridge and permanent flood defences.” 

Due for completion by May 2025, the improvements at Jubilee Parade will complement other major redevelopment at Royal Plain, Royal Green and South Quay Wharf as well as the repurposed East Point Pavilion, the new Eastern Edge beach huts and the recently refurbished beach huts near to the Claremont Pier.   

Ground investigation works took place on the site in May.
