£1 million pounds of funding is being awarded to Lowestoft to regenerate Ness Point, turning it into a landmark destination like Land's End and John O'Groats.
The idea is to improve access, knowledge, participation and enjoyment of the area and its unique maritime heritage.
The money is coming from the Department of Communities and Local Government and will be used to regenerate the town's most easterly point, by creating a new visitor destination.
Waveney District Council, working on behalf of the Lowestoft Coastal Communities Team, put forward the bid for the money and received the full amount they asked for.
Thew council says it provides them with a 'fantastic opportunity' to create a major new visitor attraction by transforming a currently semi-derelict green space and seafront promenade into an events and cultural heritage space.
£80 million worth of projects were competing for £38.1 million in funding.
