Service summary


SeaScape means a ‘picture or view to the sea’, and between the Rivers Tyne and Tees we think the view is just about as beautiful as it gets.

The National Lottery Heritage Fund is showcasing its commitment to coastal and marine heritage in the North of England and has awarding £2.78m to the Tyne to Tees, Shores and Seas Partnership scheme (SeaScapes).

This grant, hosted by Durham County Council, has allowed an exciting and long-anticipated £5 million North East coastal project to begin, benefiting communities in South Tyneside, Sunderland, Durham and Hartlepool.

Through a wide range of projects, events and activities, SeaScapes aim is to reveal and better manage the hidden heritage of our unique seascapes and coastline, and create opportunities for learning, access and enjoyment in order to ignite stewardship of this special place for generations to come. All of our 23 projects will contribute towards achieving this vision, with vital support and contributions by local communities, volunteers, and our partners.

SeaScapes is governed by a Partnership Board with an independent Chair. We have representation from project partners and an independent community representative to ensure all decisions are made in a transparent way, for the benefit of the marine environment and local communities.

All of our public events and activities are free to attend.
