This Government recognises the unique challenges facing coastal communities and is committed to levelling up all areas of the UK. Through our £229 million Coastal Communities Fund we are supporting communities across England, including fishing towns. Now, through the £3.6 billion Towns Fund we are investing up to £25 million in fishing towns such as Blyth and St Ives. Coastal communities will further be supported through our flagship Fisheries Bill, creating new powers to set fairer fishing opportunities.
