The Crown Estate believes that community-driven development will be key to the success of Scotland’s marine tourism action plan. The plan, being launched today by the Marine Tourism Development Group, has the aim of boosting the economic value of marine tourism in Scotland from £360 million to £450 million a year by 2020.
As one of the partners in the plan’s development we believe that the commitment and capability of coastal communities will be central to the plan’s success. This is based on our experience of developing ‘Local Management Agreements’ around Scotland’s coast.
