Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire funds £700K energy saving project

North East Lincolnshire Council has secured a £700K energy saving grant to reduce the carbon emissions from Cleethorpes Leisure Centre. The works, starting on Monday 11th November, are being managed by Engie.

Whilst some of the works will impact on service operations, many of the works will take place in areas not open to the public. Any disruption and impact to our services will be shared here and we will work with contractors to keep these to a minimum. Many thanks for your understanding and co-operation whilst these improvements are carried out.

Works Update

Works will be completed on the new main entrance week commencing Monday 20th January. Works are due to be completed by Saturday 25th January. During this time, please use the side entrance, to right of the main building. Thank you for your patience.

The pool at Cleethorpes Leisure Centre is temporarily closed. Please see the statement from North East Lincolnshire Council and Lincs Inspire for further information about this closure:

NELC has confirmed that following a detailed assessment of the safety issues at Cleethorpes Leisure Centre, a contractor has been commissioned to drain the swimming pool. Once drained, the pool will be cleaned and refilled. Whilst these works are taking place further maintenance works will be undertaken. These works are expected to take 4 weeks.     
In a joint statement from North East Lincolnshire Council and Lincs Inspire, a spokesperson said: “We are committed to maintaining the highest possible safety standards and thank customers for their understanding. 

“Once the works commence on Monday January 27, we will be able to provide a further update as to the timescales for the work. 

“We appreciate that this has been a long period of time without the swimming pool at Cleethorpes and we thank customers for their patience and for using our facilities in both Grimsby and Immingham. 

“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience and we look forward to welcoming all of our customers back.”

Lincs Inspire have contacted all swimming lessons customers affected by the closure period. Customers with leisure membership enquiries are asked to email

There will be reduced parking at the facility from Monday 28th October due to the contractors requiring space for their compound. This is a safety requirement and we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
