Latest NewsKnight Welcomes Local Tourism Grant
Ten coastal towns have been given £8.5m in government cash to help create nearly 1,400 jobs.
The awards come from the government’s Coastal Community Fund and the cash will be used to create or enhance tourist attractions and regenerate historic sites.
East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight has welcomed the fact that the RSPB Nature Reserve at Bempton Cliffs near Bridlington is to be granted £452,000.
Sir Greg said: “Despite the fragile but recovering economy, I am pleased that the Government has been prepared to back Bempton and nine other coastal areas with the latest round of funding.”
Sir Greg has described Bempton Cliffs as a “precious National Asset of international significance”.
Earlier this year, Sir Greg was given a guided tour of the visitor centre and the cliff-top viewing points by Keith Clarkson, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) site manager at Bempton Cliffs. Sir Greg was able to observe a number of different birds including guillemots, kittiwakes, gannets and some nesting puffins.
The MP also visited the Dell wooded area and walked along the cliff-top footpath.
Sir Greg said: “A visit to Bempton cliffs is an amazing experience and the decision to make it an even better one is certainly most welcome, not least because it will boost local tourism.”
