The Remit of the Scottish Coastal Forum is to:

  • Encourage the formation of local coastal fora, providing a point of co-ordination for these as well as acting as a central point to communicate their views and concerns
  • Encourage debate on coastal issues at a national level
  • Seek opportunities for better co-ordination of national frameworks and policies, consider the need for further advice and guidance and assist in its preparation
  • Gather information about approaches to coastal management and disseminate good practice to local fora
