CAUSEWAY Coast and Glens received a £5m boost from the UK government's budget last week.

The cash comes from Chancellor Rishi Sunak's Levelling Up Fund which aims to improve infrastructure in ex-industrial towns, and deprived rural and coastal communities.

The council has already drawn up a shortlist of projects which may benefit form Growth Deal cash.
