The Levelling Up Fund is central to Government’s ambition to level up the country – investing in high value local infrastructure and building stronger and more resilient local economies and communities. It is especially intended to support investment in places where it can make the biggest difference to everyday life, including ex-industrial areas, deprived towns and coastal communities.
Lewes District Council applied for funding in Round One of the Levelling Up Fund. Notification was received in October 2021 that a bid for investment in Newhaven fisheries has been successful and the full £12.68m has been secured. An executive summary document of our bid, 'Capturing the Value of the Catch', is provided below.
We are awaiting receipt of grant agreements and funding from Government and will confirm further information in due course. This further information will provide a full understanding of the offer and any relevant conditions, as well as timescales for funding to be received.
