We are working with Waveney District Council on ideas for Lowestoft South Beach and environs. It’s Britain’s most easterly point and there is heaps of potential in this town that has suffered in recent times. Out of our work with the council First Light Festival evolved, a 24 hour arts festival celebrating the UK’s ‘First Light’ of day on the seafront of Lowestoft, Britain’s most easterly town.
Listening at the Coast and Estuaries Conference on the 6th October 2017, David Ritchie, Chairman of the Suffolk Coast Forum and Cabinet Member for Planning and Coastal Management at Waveney District Council, had this to say:
"I live twenty five miles from Lowestoft but as a Councillor at Waveney District Council I have been working for a better future for the town for the past eleven years. I have read your report on Lowestoft and I think you've got it right. For example, I knew that there was something wrong with East Point Pavilion - but I didn't know what. I wish I had had the imagination to describe it as a faux Victorian Pavilion - telling it as it is, with an expert eye is just what we need. Your involvement gives me the confidence that Lowestoft, already much improved, has a very bright future".
