Council launches consultation on new Golden Mile complex

Great Yarmouth residents are to get an opportunity to have their say on plans for a new water and leisure complex on the town’s Golden Mile seafront. The council has confirmed that significant project development work has identified that a new and improved centre on the same site is better value-for-money than refurbishment or demolition and rebuilding in a different location.

Today the council launches public drop-in sessions, giving residents the chance to provide their feedback up until March 19th. You will see the architect’s initial concept designs and the layout of the agreed facilities. This an exciting prospect for the town and a significant multi-million investment in our iconic seafront. Conservative council leader, Graham Plant, should be congratulated in moving this project forward to this stage and securing a commitment for an improved vision for Great Yarmouth.

I urge any resident who is interested in this new development and want to have a say to pop along to one of the drop-in sessions.

Wednesday 6th March – 11am to 3pm – at the Marina Centre

Thursday 7th March – 11am to 7pm – at the Marina Centre

Thursday 14th March – 11am to 7pm – at Gorleston Library
