Scottish Coastal Forum

Scottish Coastal ForumThe Scottish Coastal Forum was formed by the Government in 1996 to encourage debate at national level on coastal issues. Its members advise Marine Scotland, from an operational perspective, on the development of policy relating to marine planning and licensing within a sustainable marine environment. The Forum also provides a network for circulating information and best practice in coastal management amongst its own varied membership and the wider ICZM community.

The Scottish Coastal Forum supports seven local coastal fora that cover much of the Scottish Coastline. On the east coast, there is almost continuous coverage by four Local Coastal Partnerships from Duncansby Head in the north to the border with England.  The situation is more fragmented on the west coast but the Western Isles, Firth of Clyde and Solway Firth all have dedicated coastal partnerships.
