Economic Growth ProjectsMaryport Marina

Economic Growth is a priority for Allerdale Borough Council and many projects are currently underway. This section contains advice and information on a number of topics including:

Britain's Energy Coast

Allerdale Borough Council has endorsed The Britain’s Energy Coast™ Masterplan. The plan is a £2 billion package of regeneration projects that will establish West Cumbria as a centre of excellence for nuclear and other energy technologies including wind power, tidal, oil and gas.

Not only does this exciting programme have the potential to create 16,000 jobs and boost Cumbria’s economic performance by £800 million in terms of Gross Value Added; it could also play an important role in helping Britain’s to tackle the twin challenges of energy security and climate change.

Port of Workington

The Port of Workington is one of the largest ports in Cumbria, and aspires to be a significant hub for the North West. Having secured over £5.7 million pounds of investment through the Britain’s Energy Coast initiative, the Port will undergo major regeneration and the implementation of new and improved services.
