Dymchurch has been selected as one of the locations receiving support to develop a strategy to underpin future bids to the Coastal Community Fund (CCF) and other sources.
The Dymchurch Coastal Community Team (DCCT), with the support of Regeneris Consulting, has developed an economic plan and action plan to provide a framework for the activities and actions for DCCT in the short and medium term.
The specific outcomes of the strategy are:
Improve the visitor offer of Dymchurch
Improve the appearance and perceptions of Dymchurch
Diversification of the local economy
Enhance local skills and employment opportunities
Underpinning these objectives is a number of themes which are explored in this strategy. For each theme there is a range of short to medium term actions and projects which will help achieve the overall objectives of the strategy.
As well as the relevant projects, possible funding streams have been identified, along with potential partner organisations that can help deliver the relevant elements of the strategy. To support the primary research, a desktop study has also been carried out.

A new organisation has been established to co-ordinate activities to support traders in New Romney. What would traditionally have been called a Traders Association has been branded for the modern world as #lovenewromney and will collaborate with traders and the local community.
The committee comprises Chairman Becky Maguire, Treasurer Pam Mellor Members Lyndon Smith and Cllr Susie Govett.
Membership for New Romney traders is free, with the team looking to deliver a social media campaign promoting the town's retailers in the first instance, and a longer term plan to research the possibility of holding a Christmas event for the town centre later this year. They will also be looking at reviving a town map for tourists.
