All Party Parliamentary Group on Coastal Communities
The three major coastal fora - the CPN, the Coastal Communities Alliance and the Local Government Association Coastal Special Interest Group (LGA Coastal SIG) - became co-secretariat for the Coastal Communities APPG in September 2020.
Together we are coordinating and delivering a participative, inclusive UK Coastal Communities APPG Inquiry: ‘A Resilient Future for Coastal Communities’. Throughout 2021, the inquiry will focus on immediate issues around survival through Covid-19.
Next year, a deeper inquiry will run around recovery, focusing upon themes identified by the APPG members and secretariat. These include climate and community resilience, flood and coastal erosion, fisheries, connectivity, education (skills & training), tourism and hospitality. This will result in recommendations to the Government for policy amendment, creation and integration.
