The Government has pledged £1.75m to build two new visitor attractions for the Lincolnshire coast.
The investment from the Coastal Communities Fund will go towards developing the UK's first purpose-built marine observatory at Chapel St Leonards as well as replacing Gibraltar Point's flood damaged visitor centre.
Both attractions are expected to create around 50 jobs, bring more tourists to the area and boost the local economy.
"Lincolnshire's coastline is stunning at any time of year but traditionally, the majority of visitors come in the summer. These projects will change this making it possible to easily enjoy our coast's internationally renowned habitats at any time of the year."
Police were called to an area off Vernatt's Drain, near the Pinchbeck Road bridge, on Sunday afternoon after a dog-walker spotted a body in the water.
Lincolnshire Police's Underwater Search Unit recovered the man. A post mortem examination is due to take place today. Officers say the man's death is being treated as unexplained and enquiries are continuing.
"A scene guard is in place, limiting public access to the area, and further work at the location will continue in daylight hours. I am appealing to any dogwalkers, or members of the public who have walked the footpath adjacent to the drain recently, and who may have information, to contact us on 101, quoting incident number 210 of 25th January".
The government has pledged more than £1.5 million to create the UK's first purpose-built marine observatory at Chapel St Leonards.
The fund will also replace Gibraltar Point's flood-damaged visitor centre.
Both will be open by the end of the year and are to be based on the images below:

UKIP has suspended Yorkshire and the Humber MEP Amjad Bashir, pending an investigation into "extremely serious financial issues".
The sixty two year old, who moved to Bradford with his family when he was eight , was elected to the European Parliament last year and is UKIP's small and medium business spokesman.
UKIP say they have suspended Mr Bashir while party officials carry out investigations into a number of issues which it considers to be extremely serious.
Mr Bashir has been informed of the specifics of the investigations which include unanswered financial and employment questions, interference with UKIP candidate selection processes and a continued affiliation with Mujeeb Bhutto, despite the party’s protests against Mr Bhutto’s involvement with Mr Bashir or UKIP.
"The UK Independence Party has a zero-tolerance policy and takes the matters at hand extremely seriously.
"The allegations against Mr Bashir are of a grave nature and we will be forwarding our evidence obtained so far to the police.
"UKIP will not tolerate anyone abusing their positions in the party, as we have a firm commitment to differing ourselves from the existing political classes.
"As a result, Mr Bashir’s involvement with the party was suspended today with immediate effect pending further investigations."
