Starting in February 2024, Lowestoft will witness the commencement of a pivotal seafront redevelopment project at Jubilee Parade.

Approved by East Suffolk Council’s Planning Committee, the project involves constructing a two-story complex. This will include a café/restaurant with sea views and outdoor seating on the first floor, concession units, new toilet facilities, outdoor showers, and a Changing Places facility on the ground floor.

The development promises enhanced seafront access through the addition of a lift and staircase connecting different levels.

The project, in two phases, begins with relocating beach huts and installing temporary amenities, followed by the main construction phase starting mid-June, aiming for completion by Spring 2025.

Cllr Toby Hammond, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for Economic Development and Transport said: “Following extensive consultation with residents and businesses, we are pleased to see the Jubilee Parade café complex progress to the next phase of delivery.”

The redevelopment aligns with the Lowestoft Town Investment Plan and the Seafront Vision project, involving extensive community consultation and collaboration with local businesses and organisations.

The second stage, which will be the construction of the main building, will begin from mid-June and is expected to be completed by Spring 2025.
