This report highlights the achievements and progress of the Coastal Communities Fund in the first 3 funding rounds between 2012 and 2015.

The Fund was set up by the government to support the economic development of coastal communities by promoting sustainable economic growth and jobs.

During its first 3 years the Fund has invested over £118 million in over 200 projects across the UK from Shetland to Cornwall, and Anglesey to Kent.

The government’s decision to extend the Fund by a further £90 million over 4 years to 2020 to 2021, will help secure the long-term future of our seaside towns so communities can drive forward their vision, unleash business opportunities and prosperity.

The next round of bidding will commence in the summer of 2016.
