A BBC TV camera arrived at the Globe office in Lincoln this morning to record an interview about the ‘Vision for Skegness’, a discussion document that I’ve been developing and leading for a local business client. So, without the aid of either make-up or stimulants I was sat down in front of the camera to explain the ‘Vision’ and the significant regeneration potential of the proposed Skegness Relief Road and its Economic Growth Corridor.
The Vision document and the interview come at an important time for Skegness, following the publication this week of the ONS report which profiled deprivation in larger seaside destinations and identified Skegness as the most deprived mid-size seaside destination in England. The Skegness Vision, which predates the ONS report but drew on similar information, recognises and responds to the deprivation issues faced by Skegness but focuses on the positive outcomes that could be achieved by the development of a new relief road and the land that would then become accessible for development.

Obviously any film or TV offers should be directed to my agent and not to Globe.
