Ambitious plans to transform Chapel St Leonards Promenade were under focus on Saturday.

A consultation event was held in the village to receive public feedback on the proposals .

The centre piece of the scheme is a three-tiered amphitheatre with seating for up to 100 people.

Other features include a new cafe, information kiosk, picnic area and public space.

Design illustrations and feedback forms were available from a stand on the village green.

People were given the opportunity to give their views on the scheme and suggest ideas of their own.

It is a joint project between Lincolnshire County Council, East Lindsey District Council, Chapel St Leonards Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Management 
Group.

It follows calls from residents for area, known as The Pullover, to be improved.

Senior development officer Amanda Bond helped shape the scheme.

She said: “We really want to engage with the community and visitors.

“There is not much in the way of fixed features on the site, so it is flexible.

“It could be used by brass bands, for church services and as an outdoor classroom.”

The county council has put forward £50,000, to seek further grant funding .

The total cost and timescale are not yet known.
