The group wants the piece of land to become known as The Shell, and include a permanent stone amphitheatre.

ELDC confirmed yesterday (Thursday) that a number of potential purchasers had come forward to submit bids for Pier Field.

East Lindsey District Council agreed to list the site as an Asset of Community Value in March following a request from SFG.

This came after a planning application had been submitted to the authority for a Premier Inn and drive-through KFC.
