Business Plan

The Solent Forum is operating in its 2020-2025 Business Plan. The 2025-2030 plan will be prepared during 2024/5.

Annual Report

The Forum agrees its annual work programme each February with its Steering Group; this document is used to produce the annual report that reports on both the work undertaken in the previous financial year and the work programme for the forthcoming financial year.

Horizon Scanning and Annual Members' Survey

The Business Plan is supplemented by an annual Horizon Scanning exercise. This process begins with an Annual Members Survey every summer. It ensures that we can stay abreast of shorter term developments over the five year lifespan of the Business Plan.

The Survey is designed to find out our members most important coastal and marine work areas in the Solent, any partnership working they are undertaking and how they think the Forum can help to facilitate their work. The results inform the Solent Forum’s Annual Horizon Scanning document, and help to set our work programme and annual programme of events and meetings.

The Survey results and the Horizon Scanning papers are available to view below.
