Steps taken to safeguard Cleethorpes' historic building and landmarks
THE first steps have been taken to secure some of Cleethorpes most historic buildings and landmarks for future generations to enjoy.
A list is being compiled of some of the resort's most important buildings, archaeological sites, designed landscapes, memorials, shipwrecks and historic vessels.
And now council chiefs want members of the public to have their say.
The list is currently still being drafted, but following the conclusion of a consultation period on December 7, a final Local List will be prepared, which will help to inform planning decisions by highlighting heritage assets of special local interest.

While Local Listing does not remove or alter any rights to alter a building or site, it may mean that planning applications affecting the building or site are subject to greater scrutiny.
Cleethorpes Town Team chairman Barry Waby said members of his group had already submitted their list to the council in the hope of securing the survival of the buildings.
Mr Waby said: "We are pleased with it. At least if there are any proposals for redevelopment of these sites, they will be given more consideration than if they were not listed.
"There are already type One and Type Two Listed buildings which are of national importance. This is a local list and will give them prominence and mean they are not left until they fall down."
"This might ensure they are used in some way like the old Wilkin Chapman offices in St Peter's Avenue and the old Cleethorpes Girls Grammar School. It would be nice to retain their character."
Councillor Peter Wheatley, portfolio holder for regeneration and environment, said: "The list includes buildings and other assets that are the best of their kind in the authority. Some assets are included because of the contribution that they make to the character of the local area.
"We welcome people to send us their views on the list. Perhaps they think we've missed something off. We will take all comments into consideration before publishing the final list early next year."
Jason Longhurst, head of development for the council, said: "The Local List for Cleethorpes is entirely new, and builds on the evidence we already have.
"We are also working on new and updated lists for Grimsby, Immingham and the villages.
"These lists will help us continue to protect and enhance the environment in North East Lincolnshire for residents and visitors alike."
