Great Yarmouth’s Coastal Communities Team aims to test and support opportunities for communities to work together to help drive forward a more inclusive and diverse culture, arts, sport and evening economy offer in and around the King Street area of the town. King Street acts as a main connector route between the town centre and various attractions including the seafront. As such it has a significant role to play in helping visitors navigate their way around the town, as well as being an area that is drawing interest from new and emerging artist and performers.
Since forming, the Coastal Communities Team has been working alongside a group of extreme sports enthusiasts who gathered over 3500 signatures in support of developing a new state of the art skate park in the area. The group mobilised after the closure of its previous base, and is now working with the CCT to host an event on Saturday 23 January, aimed at testing their ideas and plans. The group has been supported to engage with local businesses who have tailored their evening economy offer to provide live entertainment and themed events. The outcomes from this event will directly shape the CCT’s economic plan.
