Coastal towns get £40m funding boost

Coastal towns get £40m funding boost image

The Government is injecting more cash into holiday resorts in England, which it says will help boost their economies and create jobs.

Coastal communities minister Jake Berry has announced the latest £40m of coastal communities funding for 2019 to 2021 will be open for applications early next year.

He says £170m so far provided since the scheme was launched in 2012 has helped to start 485 new businesses and create 5,569 jobs, resulting in two million more people visiting the coast and spending an extra £171m.

Mr Berry said: 'From the world-renowned Blackpool illuminations to Brighton’s i360, our coastal towns and cities have a lot to offer all year round.

'That’s why we’re backing them with another £40 million of government funding, helping to boost economic growth and create jobs.

'This year is already looking like another record year for staycations and our latest round of funding will help attract even more visitors to the Great British Coast so that our coastal communities can thrive.'
