Section 2 – About Filey
Profile of the Area
Filey is an attractive coastal town. It has a rich heritage, particularly associated with maritime and fishing activities. The Town acts as a service centre for the surrounding southern area and provides a range of services and shops. The surrounding coastline and countryside provide both residents and visitors with a high quality environment and opportunities for a range of outdoor leisure activities.
The Town is an important service centre and hub for the villages within the Southern area.
The area is also popular with visitors and tourism provides a significant source of local employment and helps to support services and infrastructure which would not otherwise be sustainable in a town of its size.
Filey has a population of over 6, 500. Compared to the Borough as whole it has fewer younger people and a higher proportion of older residents. Almost 19% of the population is aged under 18 and over 31% is aged over 65.
