A NEW name…new jobs….and a major new development looks set to herald a new era in Lowestoft.

For plans for the multi-million pound investment of the Pontin's Pakefield Holiday Centre have been unveiled today.

The Chief Executive of Ocean Parcs, owner of Pontin's Ltd, Ian Smith revealed that subject to various planning application approvals, the development will take between three and five years.

The newly created Lowestoft (Pakefield) Holiday Park, will - subject to planning approval - see the park double in capacity and extend to over 100 acres.

“Extensive design work and consultation has taken place over the last 12 months and a planning application will be submitted in the very near future,” a spokesman said.

Plans will include:

Doubling the size and capacity of the Park creating a natural, open seaside feel over 100 acres and with an emphasis on the sustainable environment

An Ocean Spa complex

A leisure golf course

A village centre entertainment venue

An extended leisure pool facility

Extended and refurbished night club and theatre/ballroom

Extended sports facilities, both indoor and outdoor

Extended bar, restaurant and café facilities.

And if the scheme gets the go-ahead, the next generation of guest accommodation both catered and self catering, will be developed over the next three years and will see the park grow to a capacity of 3,000 guests and an additional 150 park jobs as well as 200 construction jobs.
