This survey launches research to review existing and new methods to support coastal governance in the UK. Recent and future changes in legislation put the land-sea interface under the spotlight. The research will explore:

  • marine and terrestrial approaches to governance across the land-sea interface;

  • opportunities, barriers and mechanisms to support collaboration;

  • how to improve coastal stewardship and what benefits that may bring.

You have been identified as someone with substantial expertise and experience linked to coastal/marine planning, resource use or management, regulation, policy or law. Your contribution to this study would therefore be very valuable.

The research process is based on the Delphi method with three rounds of enquiry (two online surveys and a workshop). This process enables you to have the opportunity to actively contribute to and shape the research as it evolves. It would be great if you could participate in the three stages, but this is optional. At the end, all participants will receive a report of the results.  

Further information about the research is available in the Participant Information Sheet. If you are interested in participating, please complete the consent section below and proceed to the survey. Should you have any queries, or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,
