Government funded regeneration of Newhaven begins on Railway Quay

This is the statement from our Local MP, Maria Caulfield regarding Railway Quay in Newhaven:-

The regeneration of Newhaven on Railway Quay, with government funding secured by Maria Caulfield MP, has begun.

Railway Quay is the area between the former UTC building and Railway Club which will soon see the opening of a new café and spaces for businesses and community organisations.

This is part of continued investment toward regeneration from the government including a £25 million Town Deal, £5 million from the Future High Streets Fund, over £6 million for the port from the Port Infrastructure Fund, £1.2 million from the Getting Building Fund to transform the UTC into an apprenticeships hub, and £850,000 to support Newhaven Fort through the pandemic.

Maria Caulfield MP said “It is fantastic to be able to see the government funding secured to regenerate Newhaven is starting to make a difference in the town. This is just the beginning. I have made clear to government Ministers how much a difference the regeneration of Newhaven will make to local people and the economy. The government have pledged millions of pounds to transform Newhaven and bit by bit, as each project gets underway, we will see Newhaven regenerated as never before.”
