Coastal Business Development Programme

This Lincolnshire County Council, Coastal Communities Funded programme provided specialist and general business support and training for coastal businesses including retailers.

The coverage of the programme was within 10 miles distance from the coast  – from Boston Borough in the South, up through the modern-day County of Lincolnshire and into the modern North East Lincolnshire Council area, as far as Grimsby in the North.
It was a programme of coastal business modernisation incorporating two distinct elements –

  • “Click to Prosper” (C2P), training to enable the skills within businesses to make effective use of smart phones, iPads, websites, online marketing, social media and selling products in a digital format - and 1-2-1 support to enable the business to plan this effectively themselves ·       
  • "Retail Rejuvenation" (RR) training, with 1-2-1 support to increase turnover, customer attraction, conversion and retention and ultimately profitability. ·      
  • Both elements were then backed up by a post-workshop grant scheme, where firms were supported to apply their learning from the workshops into a business development plan, whereby a grant of up to £1,000 could be provided, matched to their own investment plans and funding.
