A new round of the Government’s Coastal Community Fund (CCF) has opened for applications.

Berwick Harbour Commission received £2million from a previous CCF round to restore the dilapidated wooden jetty at Tweed Dock.

Northumberland County Council was also awarded a £1.8 million CCF grant in 2014 for infrastructure works to transform Amble into a visitor destination promoting seafood, attracting new visitors and creating jobs.
