Future for Maritime Cornwall:
The Cornwall Maritime Strategy 2012-2030
Maritime Strategy was adopted by Cornwall Council on 9 May 2012
and is now available to download, along with the supporting
This Strategy represents the culmination of over two years of
work with our stakeholders and consultants to produce a vision for
Maritime Cornwall which is that by 2030:-
- Cornwall has a sustainably managed maritime environment, which
is well understood and known internationally as an excellent
location for work, wildlife and for recreation;
- Cornwall’s economy is supported by a diverse range of
opportunities for ports, marine related industries, transport and
businesses including environmental technologies;
- Cornwall has a rich and enviable maritime heritage, a healthy
maritime natural environment and landscape;
- Cornwall has distinctive well-connected communities; resilient
in the face of change.
This is the first time that a dedicated Maritime Strategy has
been produced for Cornwall and it will be used by the Council to
integrate maritime issues into Council policy and strategy and
guiding the development of programmes across its operations.
It sits alongside and is linked to the Core Strategy, Local
transport Plan, Economic Strategy, Cornwall Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty Management Plan and others and as an adopted
strategy it is material consideration for planning matters.
Maritime Action Plans will now be developed which support the
objectives and aims as set out in this document. These action plans
can focus on particular themes or places and will be developed by a
range of stakeholders with expertise in the relevant field.
The overall objectives of the Maritime Strategy will be reviewed
on a 5 yearly basis.
We would like to thank those people who contributed to the
development of the Cornwall Maritime Strategy and look forward to
