Queenborough Harbour Trust CIC is delighted to have been awarded £500,000 from the Coastal Community Fund Awards, Round 4, to develop Queenborough harbour’s mooring facilities and in so doing support the local visitor economy.
As a relatively new, community-based organisation, we are grateful for the confidence the Department for Communities and Local Government has shown in us to deliver this substantial investment. We are also grateful for the support we have received in our application from a variety of sources including Sheppey Proud, the local Coastal Community Team which gathered support from the business and community service and feedback from the public. In addition we would like to thank Swale Borough Council and in particular the Regeneration Team for their support and funds in helping QHT to secure this substantial investment in the harbour facilities. We are aware of the challenges that the delivery of this project within the budget and resource constraints poses but with the support and assistance of current and new supporters and friends we will provide the improved facilities and increased capacity that will encourage more visitors from the UK and the Continent to visit Queenborough and beyond, enjoy the local services and attractions to the benefit of the local economy.
