AmbleWorks have finally commenced on site for a £1.5 million innovative scheme to transform the harbour frontage of Amble on the Northumberland Coast.

The development of a new small business village on the harbour-side at Amble comprising of a Seafood Centre and Training Academy form part of the project, along with space for 15 incubator units accommodating small start-up businesses and the creation of a waterside promenade, linking the harbour, marina area and Braid will be ground breaking to the local economy.

Centred on the town’s seafood industry, the 31 week project was drawn up by Northumberland County Council in partnership with Arch – the Northumberland Development Company, Amble Development Trust, Amble Town Council, business representatives and the wider community of Amble.
