Call for Written Evidence – Regenerating Seaside Towns Committee

Closes 1 pm on Tuesday 9 October 2018

Earlier this year a new Lords Select Committee was established with the remit ‘to consider the regeneration of seaside towns and communities’ An Inquiry has now been launched with a public call for written evidence on a range of issues affecting seaside towns and communities.

Lord Bassam of Brighton, Chairman of the Committee, said:

“Seaside towns and communities face a range of complex challenges. Our Committee will explore issues such as housing, transport, education, health and the local economy. We want to find out what the problems are and how they can be solved. We also want to look at ‘what works’ as a regeneration strategy and how we can ensure the benefits that come from regeneration can be better shared so that local people don’t feel excluded from rising prosperity and growth. We welcome submissions of written evidence from anyone with knowledge of and an interest in seaside towns and coastal communities.”

The call for written evidence contains 16 questions based around the following key themes:

  • The challenges facing seaside towns and communities
