Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum brings together a variety of stakeholders from the public, private and voluntary sectors. It is an independent voluntary body and provides a unique role where no other single organisation has overall responsibility. The Forum encourages greater integration of all interests on the Pembrokeshire coast, ranging from fishing and shipping through to energy and tourism. Inclusivity is central to the success of this work with individuals as well as organisations from the public, private and voluntary sector being involved through a range of services. All the partners work to promote a sustainable approach to the planning, management, use of and development of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Zone. This ensures that its natural, cultural and economic assets are maintained and enhanced for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. As the majority of Pembrokeshire is no further than several miles from the sea, and many terrestrial/maritime activities can have an influence on the coastal zone.
