Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum was established in May 2000, bringing together a variety of stakeholders from the public, private and voluntary sector, who are working together to promote a sustainable approach to the planning, management, use and development of the local coast and waterway. The Forum aims to raise awareness of coastal issues, providing an arena for informed discussions and debate amongst all users.
There are a huge number of different users of the Pembrokeshire coast and waterway, ranging from international ferry terminals and a major oil port, to conservation and the MOD. The Pembrokeshire economy also relies on tourism and agriculture, both of which are heavily dependent on the high quality of the local maritime and coastal environment. Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum was established as the link between them all. It aims to promote discussion, dialogue and debate, reduce the duplication of work between organisations and encourage sharing of ideas.
