Marsh Million up for grabs

The Marsh Million is three year 1 million fund supported by Magnox, Kent County Council, Shepway District Council and Ashford Borough Council to encourage economic development on and around the Romney Marsh to mitigate the socio-economic impact of decommissioning Dungeness A site.

There are two key aspects to the scheme:

  • A Business Loan Fund to provide interest free loans to start-up and small businesses.
  • An Economic Projects Fund to provide grants to projects which support the growth and diversification of the local economy.

Magnox has contributed 500,000 to the scheme which is set to create 140 jobs and support 110 businesses during its lifetime.
