£679,000 grant boost for West Norfolk
The Government has granted West Norfolk Council £679,000 towards a project to improve mooring on the Wash.
The grant from the Coastal Communities Fund has been awarded to West Norfolk to be used working in partnership with Fenland District Council to enhance existing and create more opportunities for leisure craft wanting to visit The Wash.
The project will include practical improvements to the mooring and navigational infrastructure as well as a dedicated marketing and promotions specialist to develop a Sail the Wash brand and market this among the boating fraternity. This will attract additional tourism to the area which will support the local tourist economy.
