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

The Scottish Coastal Forum was formed 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 Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) community.
