Coastal Revival Fund round in 2018 to 2019
The government is now inviting bids for a new £1 million Coastal Revival Fund round, which is for grant funding to be spent in 2018 to 2019.
Bids of up to £50,000 per project, are to be submitted by 23:59 hours on Thursday 5 July 2018.
This Coastal Revival Fund round will support projects to help revive heritage assets that are important to local communities but have not yet reached their full economic potential or are facing neglect. Examples of eligible sites and assets include seafronts and public squares, as well as piers, parks, promenades, lighthouses, lidos, marinas, military structures and so on.
There should be a clear link between what the project aims to achieve and planned future improvements to the asset.
The prospectus explains the requirements to be fulfilled to access the funding covering:
- eligibility for funding
- criteria and expected outputs
- transparency and engagement
- how to apply
The first Coastal Revival Fund round provided £3.7 million to support 92 projects in coastal areas. See details of past projects.
