Five coastal projects to share £10m funding

Five coastal projects to share £10m funding

The schemes in Cumbria, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Kent and Suffolk each successfully bid for funding from the government's Coastal Communities Fund.

They include a coastal activities centre in Whitehaven, an enterprise hub in Southwold and an environmental hub in Bournemouth and Poole. Dover's historic Market Square and Lydney Harbour will also be revamped with the cash.

The fund helps to develop and improve local attractions, create jobs and promote socio-economic growth.

The Coastal Communities Fund projects announced today are forecast to support nearly 1,000 jobs and attract up to £7.9m in additional investment from public and private sector sources.

The total Coastal Communities Fund investment is now £228m which is supporting 359 projects across the UK which are forecast to create over 20,000 jobs and builds on the government’s commitment to level up every place to ensure people have opportunities to prosper, no matter where they live.

The government has also supported 184 “at risk” coastal heritage assets such as seafront piers, promenades, lighthouses, lidos and marinas with a further £7.5m investment from the Coastal Revival Fund to allow them to reach their full economic potential.
