The Irish Sea Maritime Forum was developed following a seminar series sponsored by the Economic and Social Research Council (UK) entitled “Transnational Partnership Working in Support of Marine Spatial Planning in the Irish Sea”. The Irish Sea Maritime Forum held its Inaugural Conference in Belfast in June 2012. The overarching Vision of the Irish Sea Maritime Forum is: “An Irish Sea which has a healthy marine environment, coherent energy policy, safe clean and efficient transport and sustainable fisheries and is managed to deliver sustainable development for the benefit of all.”

The North West Coastal Forum is a multi-sector partnership bringing together coastal stakeholders from across the North West to work together across boundaries to deliver economic, environmental and social benefits for coastal communities in North West England. We work with partners from a wide range of different sectors across the North West as well as nationally and internationally on a variety of projects and policy issues. We are governed by a Management Board made up of over 25 representatives from coastal stakeholder organisations.

The Sefton Coast Landscape Partnership is embedded within Sefton Council's coast and countryside team and receives external funding.The partnership is supported by Sefton Council, Natural England, the National Trust, the RSPB, Lancashire Wildlife Trust and the Mersey Forest.
Sefton Coast is a beautiful stretch of wide beaches, rolling sand dunes, salt marshes, wetlands, heathlands and forests stretching from Crosby in the south to Marshside in the north. The partnership aims to celebrate culture and nature of this area. 

Morecambe Bay Partnership celebrates and conserves; connects and collaborates. From birds to beach cleans, from cycle ways to the history that shaped us, we work in collaboration with the community and other partners to deliver projects with real impact. Our vision is a thriving Bay, rich in landscape, wildlife and culture, which connects and inspires residents and visitors alike. One of our flagship projects is the multi-award winning Bay Cycle Way, launched in 2015.  We have won many other awards including for our work training volunteers to record oral histories to save and share the stories of our veteran fishermen. Alongside this we have involved thousands of local people in learning about and conserving local history and nature, we’ve created new habitats, removed 50 tonnes of beach litter, trained 40 teachers, collected 100's hours of oral histories, improved access for disabled people and commissioned great art projects, by internationally renowned artists to celebrate the landscapes of the Bay. 

The Duddon Estuary Partnership was set up in 1992 to bring together representatives from a range of interest groups and organisations to help ensure no harm came to wildlife interests in the area. The Partnership meets 3 times a year to raise and discuss current issues affecting the area. We have a consultative, advisory and educational role. Key members of the Partnership include: Local authorities, Natural England, Environment Agency, Town and Parish Councils, Ramblers Association, West Cumbria Sea Sports, Millom Nature Reserve Group, Wildfowlers Association, Country Landowners Association, Kirksanton Community Group and local businesses. Cumbria County Council provides the secretariat to the Partnership.
