Coastal Communities Fund and Coastal Community Teams

Coastal Communities Fund

Businesses and communities in Redcar, Coatham and East Cleveland are being encouraged to bid for a share of £90million government funding, available over the next four years, to drive economic growth and regeneration to their coastal areas.

The UK Government introduced the Coastal Communities Fund in 2012 to support economic development projects in coastal areas across the UK. Over 218 organisations have been awarded grants in this time to a value of £125 million. In Redcar and Cleveland, the fund has previously supported a number of business, landscape and tourism developments as well as providing funding for the Kirkleatham Catering Academy.

Round 4 of CCF in England closed at the end of June with 12 round-one applications being submitted across Redcar-Coatham and the East Cleveland Coast for a share of the £36m on offer.

The next funding round will open in spring 2017 for spend in 2019/20 and 2020-21 and we recommend you start developing your ideas / projects as early as you can to maximise your chances of success.

Further information on the Coastal communities Fund, including the application forms, deadlines and guidance notes are available on the BIG Lottery Fund website

Coastal Community Teams (CCTs)

In 2015 the UK government launched an initiative to create Coastal Community Teams across England to enable local communities to come together and develop a common vision and plans for their coastal area. Over 100 applications were approved and each team was tasked with agreeing their priorities and producing an economic plan that would be the basis of their ongoing activity.

Details of the CCTs and their plans can be viewed at

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council were successful in their application for two Coastal Community Teams, one covering Redcar and Coatham and the other covering the East Cleveland Coast area. The Council is working in partnership with the CCTs as they drive their economic plans to help bring sustainable jobs, tourism and economic development to the Coastal areas.
