North Thames Fisheries Local Action Group

Cultural Engine was the lead local partner with the Thames Estuary Partnership in managing the North Thames Fisheries Local Action Group. The North Thames FLAG programme ran from 2017-2020 (ended in March 2020) and was awarded £600,000 by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) to allocate to projects in the North Thames FLAG area – with a significant focus on the Port of Leigh-on-Sea). The North Thames FLAG engaged many local partners including Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, Leigh Port Partnership, PLA, and fishing industry representatives to ensure the future sustainability of Leigh-on-Sea port and the local fishing industry through increased marketing, training, heritage interpretation and improvements to port infrastructure.
