Southwold

Coastal Team

There are few seaside towns as traditionally British as Southwold with its Blue Flag beach, quirky pier, working lighthouse and coloured beach huts.  There is a small harbour serving a number of small businesses in the fishing and marine industry and the Adnams Brewery, which still operates on the same site after 670 years, wafts early morning hops into the sea air.

The town, and neighbouring parish Reydon, sit within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and are surrounded by common, beach and denes, and by extensive marshes, reed beds and mudflats all important habitats for many birds and wildlife.

The Coastal Community Team comprises representatives from Southwold Town Council, Reydon Parish Council, Southwold and Reydon Society, Southwold Chamber of Trade, Waveney District Council and other key business and community groups.

The team is seeking to create greater future economic prosperity for the town and secure long-term sustainability of its visitor economy whilst preserving and promoting the town’s unique character. It will create a framework for strengthening the town centre and visitor offer whilst galvanising local businesses, enabling investment and regeneration opportunities and coordinate effective promotion of the town.
