IoL Chair gives evidence to Lords "Regenerating Seaside Towns and Communities" inquiry Published Date: 21/03/2023

On Monday (20 March 2023) the House of Lords Liaison Committee held three one-off evidence sessions to follow-up on the recommendations of the Regenerating Seaside Towns and Communities Committee’s report, which was published in April 2019.

The Government's response to it was received in June 2019 and the report was debated in the House in July 2019. The report recommendations were subsequently followed up with a letter to the relevant minister in March 2021 with the response received in June 2021.

The committee heard from, amongst others, Institute of Licensing chair, Daniel Davies, who is also Chief Executive and Founder, Rockpoint Leisure.

This session focussed on the position of seaside towns today, the challenges faced and opportunities posed by these areas, the effectiveness of the levelling up agenda in addressing the needs of coastal areas, the current funding landscape that these areas can access, and digital and transport connectivity.

The Liaison Committee will use the evidence it gathered in these evidence sessions to produce a follow-up report, which will be sent to the Government and debated in the House of Lords chamber.
