  1. Cornwall has a sustainably managed maritime environment, which is well understood and known internationally as an excellent location for work, wildlife and for recreation;
  2. Cornwall’s economy is supported by a diverse range of opportunities for ports, marine related industries, transport and businesses including environmental technologies;
  3. Cornwall has a rich and enviable maritime heritage, a healthy maritime natural environment and landscape;
  4. Cornwall has distinctive well-connected communities; resilient in the face of change.

This was the first time that a dedicated Maritime Strategy had been produced for Cornwall and it has been used by the Council to integrate maritime issues into Council policy and strategy and for guiding the development of programmes across its operations.

It sits alongside and is linked to the  Local Plan, 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.

The Maritime Strategy is reviewed on a 5 yearly basis. The latest draft refreshed version of the strategy is on the Maritime Strategy 2018-2030 page.   

We would like to thank those people who originally contributed to the development of the Cornwall Maritime Strategy.
