Integrated Coastal Zone Management

The Welsh Assembly Government has defined a policy of Integrated Coastal Zone Management  which encourages all organisations with an interest in the coastline of Wales to work together to formulate policies and plans that will lead to vibrant, economically successful  and sustainable communities around the coastline of Wales. Shoreline Management Plans are a vital component of this process in providing key information to all the other organisations. It is therefore imperative that all the information gathered during the preparation of the Plan is made available in easily accessible formats such as paper, on CD and on a web site.

In particular the presentation of the information and background data should be such that it informs the statutory planning process in developing Local Development Plans and economic development strategies in accordance with the Welsh Assembly Government planning guidance contained in TAN 14 and TAN 15.
