LGA Coastal SIG Mission Statement

The LGA Coastal SIG will champion and take forward the coastal strategy and represent the collective interests of all maritime local authorities by:

a. bringing pressure on the Government to achieve a step change in the level of funding to overcome present and future problems;

b. use every opportunity to secure full involvement of local Government at all levels of policy formulation concerning the coast;

c. strongly oppose any changes which take responsibility and decision-making powers out of the hands of local democratic leaders.
