Team to create coastal vision


A new team has been created to put forward a long term vision for Skegness.

The Coastal Commuity Team has been announced by the Department for Communities and Local Government, which has also launched a new £3m fund to help revive at-risk coastal heritage, potentially creating opportunities for new businesses and jobs.

The Coastal Revival Fund will help unlock the econo mic potential of buildings, and facilities such as piers, lidos and proms.

Grants will be used to get restoration projects underway by funding intitial work to attract additional investment from the private and charitable sectors.

A coastal team was given the greenlight in March to maximise the potential of visitor centre projects at Gibraltar Point and Chapel St Leonards.
