As part of the Skegness Gateway concept, 1,000 additional residences are to be constructed.

A multimillion-pound education facility is being built in a coastal town in Lincolnshire. The 1,000 new residences, 41,000 square meters of commercial space, lodging for tourists, a crematorium, a primary school, a neighborhood shopping center with stores, bars, and restaurants, and 4,000 square meters of storage space are all part of the Skegness Gateway master plan.
The Skegness TEC campus, which will provide higher education courses to the locals of Skegness and the surrounding villages, is now under construction. The specially designed college will offer postsecondary education programs in a wide range of disciplines, such as engineering, construction, hospitality, and tourism.

The organization intends to assist more than 1,000 residents in finding work over the next few years. “I am thrilled that construction is underway on our new Skegness Learning Campus,” stated Ann Hardy, CEO of TEC Partnership. Seeing our ideas and plans come to pass will be fantastic. The Skegness community will benefit from a wide curriculum and new opportunities brought about by the new learning campus.”

Chris Baron, chair of Connected Coast, said: “It is fantastic to see work now under way on the Learning Campus, a development set to be genuinely transformational for local people, offering access to training in much-needed subjects in Skegness. The Learning Campus is Connected Coast’s flagship Town Deal, and it has the potential to be an economic game-changer for the area, allowing people to gain the skills and knowledge they need to get the jobs they want.

“The start of work is a hugely significant milestone, and I look forward to seeing this exciting new facility come out of the ground over the coming months, ready to welcome students in 2025.”

Subject to planning approval, Skegness Gateway, a 136-hectare property west of the town, will provide a significant new “sustainable urban extension” for Skegness. Hundreds of employment, a new college, much-needed amenities, and new residences for the community are all intended outcomes of the development.
