Coastal Community Teams to take control of seaside regeneration

Two areas of Allerdale successfully bid for £10,000 each to kick start activity. Maryport and Allonby, along with Silloth-on-Solway, were among 104 areas to receive funding from the new Government programme to help them develop their economic plans.

The teams – bringing together local business, councils and people – will help coordinate regeneration projects in their area and get the chance to shape the next wave of the successful Coastal Communities Fund.

By bringing together local businesses, local leaders and volunteers, Coastal Community Teams can help tap into their local heritage and make the most of our stunning seaside assets to make a success of the tourist trade. The teams can also help ensure local people have the skills and opportunities so that they benefit from the new jobs and investment too.

The overall aims of Coastal Community Teams are to:
- encourage greater local partnership working in coastal areas
- support the development of local solutions to economic issues facing coastal
- establish a network of teams across England who can work together and with
Government to tackle issues facing coastal communities, and
- encourage the sustainable use of heritage/cultural assets to provide both a focus for
community activities and enhanced economic opportunities.

Coastal Community Teams were also 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 that benefit the wider community and the surrounding economy.  Maryport and Allonby was successful in bidding to this fund.

Silloth-on-Solway was also successful with its project to extend the cycleway from Allonby to Silloth, achieving an award of £1m from the Coastal Communities Fund.
