Coastal Community Teams to take control of seaside regeneration

17th July 2015

Over 100 new local Coastal Communities teams will help revive England’s seaside towns and decide where investment goes. The government has provided more than £1 million to fund 104 further Coastal Community Teams, on top of 12 existing pilots, to help bring jobs, growth and prosperity back to our beach towns and cities. Along with each area being awarded £10,000 to kick-start work, the 116 Coastal Community Teams will also be able to bid for up to a £50,000 share of a new £3 million Coastal Revival Fund to support or restore local heritage and facilities which benefit the wider community and the surrounding economy, and is now open to applications.
