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
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries.
