Five transformational projects along the Great British Coast have been awarded over £10 million from the government’s Coastal Communities Fund, and one of them is at Lydney Harbour.
Lydney Harbour will receive a £2.1m Government grant.
The cash boost will support coastal projects in Cumbria, Dorset, Kent and Suffolk, as well as Gloucestershire, to create jobs, boost tourism, improve transport and protect much-loved coastal heritage sites.
The fund helps to develop and improve local attractions, create jobs and promote socio-economic growth.
The Coastal Communities Fund projects are forecast to support nearly 1,000 jobs and attract up to £7.9 million in additional investment from public and private sector sources.
This latest announcement brings the total Coastal Communities Fund investment to £228 million which is supporting 359 projects across the UK which are forecast to create over 20,000 jobs.
