The East Grampian Coastal Partnership is inviting people who live or work on the Aberdeenshire coast to tell it what is affecting them and what could be done to improve the maritime area.

This could include ideas such as how to help tourism businesses, encourage wildlife or simply enjoy time by, in or on the sea.

The Key Issues Report is aimed at informing the planners of the future, but also highlighting opportunities that can be delivered now.

The document highlights current activities at the coast, problems and opportunities and suggests further work to help better understand these issues.

East Grampian Coastal Partnership (EGCP) report author Ian Hay said: “The coast is key to the people of the north-east of Scotland, whether it be for work or simply for enjoyment.

"However, there is so much activity it can be hard to keep track of what is happening.”

The partnership is particularly keen to hear from people involved in the fishing industry, energy industry and tourism/recreation.

EGCP chairman and director David R Green said: “In order to understand this vibrant region and plan for the future, the Key Issues for the Coast report has been developed and we would be keen to get your views.”

The report is out for consultation until May 15 and can be found at www.egcp.scot

Feedback should be sent to ian.hay@egcp.org.uk and will be included in an action plan as well as input to a number of community and stakeholder workshops in the coming year.
