The future of a piece of land at the centre of a planning battle in Skegness should be decided at a meeting tonight.
Developers want to build an 80-bedroom hotel and fast food restaurant on Pier Field. Campaigners want it to be registered as a 'community asset'.
Five men in Skegness have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
Police were called to an address on South Parade in the town at around 4:30pm on Saturday where they found two injured men, aged 18 and 23.
Both were taken to hospital where one was later discharged, but the other is in a critical condition.
The five men were arrested after a silver Ford Focus, believed to have been connected with the attempted murder was stopped on the A16 at Ulceby Cross.
The Senior Investigating Officer DCI David Rimmer said:
This was a brutal attack for which the motives are currently unclear. Although we have arrested suspects I am appealing for anyone who may have witnessed anything that may be connected to this incident either on South Parade, Skegness or on the A16 yesterday in the late afternoon.
Campaigners who are fighting plans for a hotel development on Skegness seafront have now come up with an idea for a concert -style venue on the land.
A decision over whether to sell Pier Field to KCS Developments is expected to be made by East Lindsey District Council on Monday.
But campaigners say if they are successful in securing Pier Field for community use, they could then seek permission to build a venue called 'The Shell' on the land instead.
The drawings give an insight into what the stage could look like.

Developers want to construct an 80-bedroom hotel and a restaurant. The decision has been adjourned until March 9th.

Campaigners in Skegness are claiming a partial victory in their battle to save a piece of land from being sold to developers.
East Lindsey District Council was expected to make a decision today over whether a developer could buy the site next to Skegness Pier - to potentially build an 80 bed hotel and fast food restaurant.
