5. Coastal Communities Fund

The £6 million fund is the sixth round of the Transforming Towns Coastal Communities Fund, designed to support the economic development of coastal areas, promote sustainable jobs and bring regeneration to coastal town centres and high streets. This investment will enable the delivery of projects worth £17 million in total. 

The fund invited applications focusing on job creation, protection, and high street rejuvenation in coastal areas. For the first time half of the funding has been targeted specifically at town centre projects. 

27 projects were successful under this round of funding including; £223,300 for Viva Port Talbot, £300,000 for Cwmni'r Frân Wen Cyf arts and community hub in Bangor and £200,000 towards the Cardigan Market Hall Restoration.


Round 6 of the fund has now closed for applications and no new rounds are planned at present.
