Coast to Capital has awarded £789,774 Local Growth Funding towards projects in Caterham and Littlehampton to help deliver prosperous places.
Research for the Local Industrial Strategy (LIS) evidence base has found that local urban, rural and coastal areas face unique and diverse challenges. In response to some common issues such as personal wellbeing and air pollution the following projects have been awarded funding:
- Caterham Business Hub (£225,500) – Tandridge District Council is seeking to transform Quadrant House into a digitally enabled building that provides better business space for the community and to open a business hub facility in part of the building.
- Littlehampton Public Realm (£564,274) - The scheme involves transforming the town centre to create a modern, better-connected, pedestrian-friendly space.
The schemes are subject to final checks and due diligence.
Jonathan Sharrock, Chief Executive at Coast to Capital said:
“Our vision by 2030 is for our towns and cities to be known around the world as fantastic places to live, grow and succeed. We are delighted to have awarded Local Growth Funding to a range of projects that align with our work to improve urban centres. We look forward to working with partners on the next steps.”
