Will the sun shine on your bid? 
Creative coastal entrepreneurs can now bid for a share of £90m government funding available UK-wide over the next 4 years to support their plans to reel in jobs and revitalise our much-loved seaside areas.  Since 2012, the government has invested over £120m in seaside areas through a dedicated Coastal Communities Fund.  Grants of between £50,000 and £4m are available.  Bids for the latest round in England will close on 30 June 2016.  Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland applicants should prepare bids now for when their applications will open in early July.
