The UK coastline plays a vital role in the economy, history and culture of our country. The government is helping coastal communities flourish and strengthen their appeal as places to live, work and visit.
Coastal Communities Fund Round 5
The Coastal Communities Fund is currently closed for new applications. Funding goes to projects over £50,000 that will ultimately lead to regeneration and economic growth whilst directly or indirectly safeguarding and creating sustainable jobs.
Over £3.8 million (£3,804,193) of Coastal Revival Fund has been awarded to 92 successful projects in 2018-19 that will help to bring coastal areas ‘at risk’ heritage and community assets back into economic use. It is closed for new applications.
This fund could start the regeneration of a much loved building or asset such as pier, park, 1930’s lido or promenade.
Since 2015, the Coastal Revival Fund has provided over £7.5 million to support 184 projects in coastal areas to help kick-start regeneration of ‘at risk’ coastal heritage that has the potential to create opportunities for new economic uses. See details of past projects.
Coastal Community Teams
The first Coastal Community Teams were set up in 2015. Since then £1.46 million has been provided to 146 teams around the British Coast.
