The Falmouth Area Coastal Community Team (FACCT) is a newly created body which brings together representatives of the public, private and charitable sectors working for the advancement of Falmouth. It was formed in July 2015, supported by funding from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
The area covered by FACCT is the entire administrative area of Falmouth plus the marine area to the east between the town and Carrick Roads. Whilst the emphasis of projects is on the core waterside leisure, commercial, harbour and tourism areas, this wider definition provides the opportunity to tackle related economic issues on the seafront and peripheral areas.
FACCT is also acting as the Economy and Employment Working Group for the Neighbourhood Plan, and will be identifying policies and land requirements to meet Falmouth’s business needs for the future.
The FACCT Team have already produced an overarching Falmouth Economic Plan June 2016
