What we do

Our role is to manage and enhance the value of our coastal assets.

Our coastal portfolio comprises foreshore and seabed throughout the UK through which we have interests in ports, harbours, leisure boating and aquaculture facilities. We also own three marinas. 

We issue licences or leases for aquaculture sites, most of which are near remote communities. We also lease sites for moorings, marinas and coastal development, and have an interest in at least parts of many ports and harbours. We provide active support, including capital, to help the established businesses that currently generate the majority of the coastal estate's income. 

Our activities include: 

  • granting agreements to facilitate development at locations such as Hinkley Point, Cowes and Dover.
  • managing thousands of leases or licences for works and activities with ports, harbours, moorings and marinas.
