Christchurch Borough Council Secures Funding for Coastal Schemes

Christchurch Borough Council, working in partnership with The Dorset Coastal Community Team (DCCT), has just been awarded £424,000 to deliver coastal projects in Christchurch.

The BID, which was submitted to the Coastal Community Fund in 2016, aimed to connect people to the coast, connect coastal communities to each other and connect the Dorset coast to the ‘wider world’.

Within the bid there were four coordinated projects specifically for Christchurch, the official release stated.

Gary Foyle, Community and Recreation Team Leader, said: “We are thrilled that Christchurch coastline will now benefit from such substantial funding. The money will support key projects in both Highcliffe and Mudeford with a view to improving access.”

In total 18 projects, between Christchurch & Lyme Regis, successfully received funding under the umbrella project titled ‘Dorset Coastal Connections-People and Places’.
