    Having last week agreed business case approval for its planned new Marine Lake Events Centre in Southport, Sefton Council is about to start investigatory works to finalise the Venue’s design and development.

    Letters have been sent to local residents to inform them that investigatory works on the existing Southport Theatre and Convention Centre site and the Upper Promenade, will start on Monday 8th August.

    Progress

    Expected to take around four weeks, Monday to Friday, from 8am to 6pm, the investigations will involve assessing the underground conditions to progress the design further. Measures will be in place to minimise disruption to local residents, businesses and neighbours.

    After approving the business case for the Marine Lake Events Centre & Water and Light Show project in Southport, Sefton Council is now keen to progress the scheme as quickly as possible.

    Exciting and important

    Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, Cllr Marion Atkinson said: “The Marine Lake Events Centre is a hugely exciting and hugely important scheme for Southport and Sefton.

    “The Centre is forecast to attract more than half a million visitors to Southport year on year and generating an annual £18 million for the local economy so I am pleased to see work to progress getting underway so soon after receiving Council Cabinet backing.

    “We now need the Government to release the funding we need to make the Centre a reality as soon as possible.”

    Agreed

    Plans to procure a Design & Build contractor and an Operating Partner for the venue were also agreed at the recent Sefton Council Cabinet meeting. A detailed planning application has already been submitted.

    The Marine Lake Events Centre is one of the schemes being develop as a result of the successful bid for £37.5m of Town Deal funding for Southport. It will see Southport’s Theatre and Convention Centre transformed into a high-quality entertainment and business events venue

    The new Centre will be complemented by the UK’s first light, water and sound show in the town’s Marine Lake.

    Milestone

    Cllr Atkinson also talked about the work that has gone into getting the scheme to this stage. She said: “I would like to thank all the Sefton Council staff involved for the huge efforts that has gone into reaching this important milestone for the Southport Marine Lake Events Centre, and my Cabinet colleagues for their support.

    “This and the other Town Deal schemes will be a game-changers for the economy of Southport and Sefton and will provide a huge boost for local businesses as well as opportunities for new ones.

    “It’s critical that we can now get on and deliver for the residents of Sefton.”

    Deal

    Another key scheme made possible through the Town Deal are the Enterprise Arcade, which will see Crown Buildings refurbished to create new business incubator space, supporting Southport’s emerging creative, digital and tech sector.

    Also, Les Transformations de Southport, will see the development of high-quality public spaces and an accessible and well-connected transport network, providing priority for walking and cycling in support of clean growth.

    All of the schemes will be supported by a comprehensive programme of work to ensure visitors to Sefton, and the town’s residents enjoy across-the-board, high-quality Customer service.

    Have they? I wonder when the letters will arrive then.

    Which will, as per usual, attract vehement opposition from a small but noisy Facebook group of local motorists. Whose opposition to cycling, comes from fear of losing the odd strip or two of 'their tarmac' to the humble bike - duh!

    I'm on the Prom 100 yards from it. Maybe not close enough!
