Our Aims & Vision

 The North West Coastal Forum’s aim is to promote and deliver integrated coastal zone management in the North West to secure the long-term sustainability of the region’s coast.

The Forum also has a vision for a sustainable future for the North West coast. Summed up by the phrase, ‘Making the most of the North West Coast’, it includes:

  • Well-integrated planning and management of the coastal zone
  • The economic potential of the NW coast achieved in ways which safeguard, enhance, restore and sustainably use our natural and cultural assets
  • A high quality natural and built coastal environment able to adapt to climate and other change
  • Improved recreational opportunities and visitor experience
  • Improved well being of coastal communities
  • Raised appreciation of the North West Coast

We have a business plan and accompanying delivery plan which sets out our full programme of work and how it links to the objectives above. These can be downloaded here:
