Report on small seaside towns released

18/03/2011

Department for Communities and Local Government has released a report showing that 22 of the 37 smaller seaside towns in England have an overall level of deprivation greater than the English average, and states that the Lincolnshire coast stands out as a location of acute disadvantage.

This report provides an information base on England’s smaller seaside towns. It presents a range of statistical evidence on socio-economic conditions and compares the figures with regional and English averages and with the averages for larger seaside towns. The figures are also intended to help identify the smaller seaside towns with the most significant social and economic problems.

The report focuses on 37 smaller ‘seaside towns’ (or resorts) rather than all smaller places around the coast. To read the report click here: Direct link to document (PDF; 3.1 MB)
