Zoomtown-on-Sea? The lure of a new life on the coast

Liz Colling, Scarborough’s councillor in charge of inclusive growth, wants the town’s next reinvention to be about revitalising the local economy, including encouraging more digital jobs. It’s a “very realistic ambition” which is already beginning to happen, she says. “I have a nephew who has just started a job remotely. He would never have applied before because it’s based in London,” says Cllr Colling, adding that her son is also working remotely.
