The new Coastal Consents Guide was launched at the March 2012 Forum meeting. The Guide has been updated to reflect the changes that have taken place since the introduction of the Marine and Coastal Access Act, 2009. Its purpose is to give those who wish to undertake coastal works and development an overall view of what consents they need to apply for and the considerations that should be taken into account both before and during the application process. The Guide has no legal basis and the Solent Forum takes no responsibility for any actions taken in response to its content; it is an applicants responsibility to ensure they have the correct consents in place before undertaking work. Queries should be directed to the consenting authority.
The information was correct at the time of uploading (March 2012). It will be periodically reviewed and updated. Download project flyer (pdf file).
To use the Guide effectively, please visit the seven sections listed below. We recommend that you use all the sections, even if your development is small scale, to get the best possible understanding of how to obtain the necessary consents in the most efficient manner. This Guide was sponsored by the Crown Estate's Marine Communities Fund.
