Lydney

Coastal Team

Destination Lydney is seeking to increase the tourism and recreation potential of Lydney docks and harbour whilst retaining and safeguarding its historic character and structure.  The harbour is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and Grade 2 Listed Building currently identified by Heritage England within their Heritage at Risk Register.

Improving pedestrian and cycle access from the harbour area to the railway station and town centre shops and services are key priorities for the new partnership team. There is also a strong desire locally to attract investment to build a café, toilets and specific features to support increased boat use.  Improving the overall visitor experience, dwell time and spending in this area are all target outcomes whether people arrive by road, rail, cycle, boat or on foot.

Coastal Community Team status and Coastal Revival Funding were awarded to Lydney in 2015 to support these ambitious goals.  The new Coastal Community Team is led by the Environment Agency, Forest of Dean District Council and Lydney Town Council who form the Executive Group.  The wider Stakeholder Team includes a wide range of local businesses, community and voluntary sector organisations.
