Solent News

The Solent Forum publishes a free bi-annual newsletter called Solent News. This reviews all the coastal news that has happened in the Solent over the last six months. It is produced as summer and winter editions and is distributed to the Solent's coastal community. To be placed on the mailing list please contact the Solent Forum Office.

Submission Guidelines

for this publication we only include articles that adhere to the Solent Forum's position of being a neutral and independent information sharing body. Consequently, as a matter of principle, we don't publish articles where individual Solent Forum members are responding to local consultations, planning or marine licence applications, or are campaigning or lobbying about specific issues.



Issue 49 will be produced in winter 2020. We welcome articles on coastal matters for inclusion or any coastal news from the last six months.  Articles should be a maximum of 300 words and preferably be illustrated with an image (high resolution suitable for print). Please submit articles to the Solent Forum Office at info@solentforum.org.  The last two issues can be viewed below. The deadline for Submissions is Friday 18th December 2020.

Please remember that Solent Forum members can also use the Forum's monthly monthly enews service to publicise news, events, consultations or job opportunities.  Send all details to info@solentforum.org.


Solent News was first published in December 1997. Below are links to the last two copies (pdf files). If you would like to view back issues then please contact the Solent Forum Office.
