Education & Skills


Our Vision

Our vision for Mablethorpe and Skegness is that they will make their distinctive contributions to a Connected Coast, renewed and refreshed as settlements through a programme which: diversifies their economies, builds their skills base and establishes them as national test beds for future living and natural resource management. They will become places where positive ageing, a cutting edge approach to tourism and innovation around energy and water management turn current weaknesses into nationally significant strengths.

“This is such an exciting time for our coastline and I’m extremely proud to be heading up our passionate Board to help shape an ambitious project for two such important seaside resorts. It is great that Central Government has realised the importance of supporting our communities and we are working extremely hard to ensure we receive our fair share of the fund. We are keen to hear from our communities about what is important to them and we look forward to sharing plans with you as the project develops.”

Sarah Louise Fairburn, CCB Chair (Private Sector Representative)
