5.3.4 Plymouth Sound to Fowey: Key stakeholders and their involvement

Navigation Arrows Previous Next Previous Next

Whilst there is not a singular body or forum coordinating stakeholder engagement and management, a culture of working together and collaboration currently exists.

In the Plymouth-Fowey case study, the Ecosystem Services Assessment process was informed and validated by local management stakeholders.  Within the case study area there are a number of stakeholder groupings that undertake cross-sectoral coastal and marine management, for example the Tamar Estuaries Consultative Forum, Fowey Estuary Partnership and the Cornwall AONB Partnership.

A Task and Finish Group was established for the project. It consisted of key stakeholders responsible for the management of marine and coastal areas within the case study site (see following table).

It included representatives from local government authorities, environmental and marine governmental bodies, local harbour authorities, landscape and estuary management partnerships and NGOs.

Whilst the case study extended beyond Cornwall, representatives from the local authorities in Devon indicated that were happy not to participate in the Task and Finish Group as the case study’s management focus would relate only to the Cornish coast and seas.
