The Solent Forum's Coastal Consents Guide is being updated over summer 2017. Please note that the content is still subject to change while we undertake this process. Its purpose is to give those who wish to undertake coastal works and development an overall view of what consents they need to apply for and the considerations that should be taken into account both before and during the application process.
The Guide has no legal basis and the Solent Forum takes no responsibility for any actions taken in response to its content; it is an applicants responsibility to ensure they have the correct consents in place before undertaking work. Queries should be directed to the consenting authority.
To use the Guide effectively, please use all the seven sections listed below. It is important to use all of the sections, even if your development is small scale, to get the best possible understanding of how to obtain the necessary consents in the most timely and cost efficient manner.
The SCOPAC Research Fund has match funded the preparation of this Guide.
