£600k arts space, observatory and restaurant planned for Chapel Point, Lincolnshire
A NEW all-year round attraction including an arts space, observatory and restaurant is in the pipeline for a coastal community.
Lincolnshire County Council is planning a major investment into a new facility at Chapel Point, which is likely to be around the £600,000 figure.
The plans include a new 70-seat cafe/restaurant, art gallery and coastal observation point which are likely to boost local businesses by safeguarding jobs on the coast as well as creating new ones.
Lincolnshire County Council would be leasing the land from Chapel St Leonards Parish Council, who own the area of land at the top of Chapel Point.

Chapel St Leonards Parish Council, discussed the proposal at its meeting on Friday.
Parish clerk Mike Green told the Target: "The parish council felt the development would improve the area, bring in more visitors, giving a great benefit at no cost to the local people."
The plans are still being developed and it is hoped a public meeting will take place in the near future to present the proposal to the public before a planning application is submitted.
Councillor Colin Davie, Lincolnshire County Councillor for Ingoldmells Rural, said: "I am delighted that the parish council and the county council have come to an agreement as to the development of Chapel Point and I look forward to the public meeting in Chapel St Leonards shortly to explain how this project is going to bring enormous benefits to the village, its residents and the coast line."
Cllr Eddy Poll of Lincolnshire County Council said: "We're currently drawing up designs for the new coastal observatory, which we should be able to share with local residents in the near future.
"The observatory will be the perfect spot for people to enjoy the spectacular Lincolnshire coastline and its beautiful wildlife. There will be lots of information on local nature and plenty of things for the kids to do.
"We will also have a small café and art space. Hopefully, this will attract even more visitors to the area, boosting the local economy."
