Support for the Southwold Town Council Coastal Community Fund Bid 
 
On  behalf  of  the  Southwold  Coastal  Community  Team,  I  am  writing  to  support  the  application  being 
submitted by Southwold Town Council for the Southwold Enterprise Hub project. 
 
The Southwold Coastal Community Team (CCT) was set up in 2017 and comprises representatives from 
Southwold Town Council, Reydon Parish Council, Southwold and Reydon Society, Southwold Chamber of 
Trade, Waveney District Council and other key business and community groups. 
 
The aim of the CCT is to create greater future economic prosperity for the town and secure long-term 
sustainability of its visitor economy and I firmly believe that this application realises a number of the key 
economic strands running through our economic plan.  
 
The project will help to create a framework for strengthening the town and visitor offer, diversify the 
local economy whilst galvanising local businesses, enabling investment and regeneration opportunities 
and coordinate effective promotion of the town.  It will create a ‘Business and Enterprise Hub’ at Station 
Yard that brings together and supports the delivery of: 
 
•  Premises and support for start up and growing businesses and enterprises 
•  The appointment of a Development Manager to support high street/business and enterprise 
development and the marketing and promotion of Southwold  
•  The appointment of a Visitor Economy Coordinator to support out of season events and visitor 
experience development, marketing and promotion of Southwold and development support of 
Heritage opportunities  
 
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries. 
 
Yours sincerely,

Southwold Coastal Community Team
