  • How will seaside towns and communities benefit from the Government's Industrial Strategy?
  • Does the Coastal Communities Fund provide enough resource to support meaningful changes? Is the bidding process transparent enough and easy to engage with? Does the Fund need to change?
  • What other sources of funding are available to support the regeneration of seaside towns and communities?
  • Are there any examples of interventions that have successfully stimulated local economic growth?
