Bridport and West Bay to Benefit from Coastal Community Fund

Bridport and West Bay have been chosen as one of the coastal areas to benefit from funding under the Government’s Coastal Communities Team initiative.

This means that the area will receive £10,000 funding to help establish a Coastal Communities Team. Bridport Town Council, the Bridport Chamber of Trade and Commerce, Bridport & District Tourism Association and the Bridport Local Area Partnership worked together to submit the successful application, which was supported by the Bridport Area Development Trust, West Bay Community Forum and West Dorset District Council.

The area will receive £10,000 of funding to help establish the new Coastal Communities Team, which will involve representatives from all of these organisations, and which will produce an Economic Plan for the area, to be published by the end of January 2016.
