England's Smaller Seaside Towns

England's Smaller Seaside Towns
Copyright Gavin Holder

A benchmarking report about England’s smaller seaside towns was published in 2010. The report presents a range of statistical evidence on socio-economic conditions and compares the figures from small seaside towns with regional and English averages and with the averages for larger seaside towns.

The report is a direct counterpart to a benchmarking study of England’s larger seaside towns, published in 2008. The report focuses on 37 smaller ‘seaside towns’ (or resorts) rather than all smaller places around the coast. All these towns have a population below 10,000 which, according to official definitions, qualifies them as ‘rural’ settlements.
