A multi-million pound round of funding designed to transform the UK’s coastal communities is now open for bids, minister announces.

The coastal communities minister, Jake Berry, announced the opening of the fifth round of applications for the Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) yesterday during a visit to Barrow-in-Furness.

The CCF has awarded grants to 295 projects worth over £174m since it was launched in 2012. According to the Government, it has created 500 new businesses supporting over 5,500 jobs.

‘Coastal communities up and down the country from Barrow-in-Furness to Brighton have been boosted by this funding which has spurred inward investment, sustainable growth, new jobs and exciting economic opportunities for local businesses,’ said Mr Berry.

‘By 2020, we’ll have invested nearly a quarter of a billion pounds in our seaside areas, providing thousands of jobs, training places and opportunities along the Great British Coast.’

Funding for the fifth round of the CCF will cover the period 2019-20 to 2020-21 with funds becoming available from April 2019.
