The investment includes plans to double the size and capacity of the Pontins centre at Pakefield, near Lowestoft, together with a complete rebuild for two other sites and refurbishment for two more.

Ian Smith, chief executive of Ocean Parcs, which acquired Pontins in a �46million deal just under a year ago, said: “We are tremendously excited about the investment planned for the development of our Pontin's Holiday Centres and the employment and tourism revenue that will be generated by this substantial investment.

“It is particularly rewarding to be able to announce these plans which will not only generate increased tourism but create over 2000 new jobs whilst the country is in a recession.”
