Work has officially started at ‘The Ness’ – the most easterly park in the UK.

The site of the park, next to Birds Eye on Whapload Road in Lowestoft, will be regenerated with £1m that was secured from the Coastal Community Fund.
‘The Ness’ is being delivered through a working partnership between Lowestoft Town Council, East Suffolk Council and Concertus Design and Property Consultants.

Celebrating Lowestoft’s maritime heritage – ‘The Ness’ will feature a picnic and play area, a bespoke bridge to the sea wall, as well as interactive and educational information. 

The Suffolk site, which will be sensitively landscaped to protect the area’s unique flora and fauna, also includes the seafront walkway and the most easterly point in the UK –  Ness Point.
An official ‘sod-turning’ event has been held to mark the beginning of the works and are expected to be complete by early summer. 

The Ness’ sits within the boundary of the North Lowestoft Heritage Action Zone, which will bring further funding to the area to uplift North Lowestoft – through heritage led regeneration.
