New Coastal Communities Fund Launched

Worthing and Adur will be able to cash in on a new regeneration fund being announced today by George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer. He said "This new funding shows that the Government is committed to supporting coastal communities and ensuring that they benefit from the revenue that our coasts and the Crown Estate produce."

The multi-million pound fund is being targeted to support economic development, for example by improving skills and learning or supporting charities.

Cllrs Bryan Turner (Worthing) and Jim Funnell (Adur) will be working with Council regeneration staff to make sure that our area will benefit.
