Funding boost for New Brighton economic partnership
A new partnership of organisations, businesses and groups in New Brighton has been boosted in its ambitions to further regenerate the resort with the award of a grant from central government.
The group, New Brighton Coastal Community Team, has been awarded £10,000 to develop an economic plan for the area. Work is now underway with local residents, businesses, visitors to the area and other interested parties over the coming months to help produce an economic plan which will be published at the end of January 2016.
In the interim the Coastal Community Team is exploring funding opportunities to help progress initial priorities for the area.
The collective vision for New Brighton is that it builds upon its strengths to become a year round premier destination, attracting increased day trippers and overnight stays and increasing employment, whilst supporting and responding to the needs of the local community.
