Bid successful on Skegness Town Hall

East Lindsey District Council has announced that Skegness Town Hall has had a successful bid, which has now been accepted.

Skegness Town Hall has been offered for sale since February, and within that time it has been showcased by Lambert Smith Hampton as the vendor’s sole agents, where final offers for the Grade II Listed property ended on Friday 29 April 2022.

Local businessman Taj Bola is the successful bidder in respect of the Town Hall.

Taj Bola, owner of The Royal Hotel Skegness, said: “I am very pleased with the acquisition of this important piece of Skegness History. I am unable to disclose too much at this stage, other than to say that this forms part of my long-term strategy of developing visitor attractions and experiences along the entire length of the sea front, from North Parade all the way to Princes Parade.

“Skegness is a great resort and has great potential for the future. East Lindsey District Council have shown great commitment to Skegness with the modernisation and development of key amenities, it is now up to businesses to show the same vision and commitment.”

Councillor Richard Fry, portfolio holder for finance at East Lindsey District Council, said: “We are pleased the Town Hall has received a successful bid, it is an extraordinary building with a fantastic coastal location. We look forward to seeing the property in full use again and wish Mr Bola well in his future endeavours.”
