Felixstowe is one of twelve pioneering coastal towns to be selected by the Government to have a dedicated coastal team that willhelp support the local economy.
Coastal Teams are designed to bring local people, councils and businesses together. The new Felixstowe Team coordinated by SCDC will engage existing community networks and develop the key heritage assets within the town.
Welcoming the news, Therese said: "This is great news for Felixstowe and complements the Felixstowe Seafront Summit that I set up recently to develop our seafront and help accelerate projects such as the pier."
Therese added: "As well as being awarded £10,000 to kick-start work, the Felixstowe Coastal Team will also be able to bid for a share of the new £3 million coastal revival fund."
