East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight has welcomed the announcement from Chancellor George Osborne that the Government will extend the Coastal Communities Fund to provide future grants up to 2020.

The Coastal Communities Fund has previously provided money for regeneration projects in seaside towns across England, including over £2 million for the construction of the ‘Leisure World’ facility in Bridlington.

Sir Greg backed the £2.1 million of funding for Bridlington Leisure World,and he today welcomed the fact that more money would be in the pipeline for Bridlington.

Sir Greg said, “This is good news for Bridlington and will allow new bids for additional funding to be made to make Bridlington an even better place to live.”
