Date lodged: 24 January 2017
To ask the Scottish Government what the implications of devolution are for the Crown Estate's coastal communities fund.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 1 February 2017
The Fiscal Framework Agreement sets out the principle that responsibility for the UK Government's Coastal Communities Fund will be devolved to the Scottish Government. Scottish Ministers have agreed to a further round of funding applications under Round four for 2017-18.
Scottish Ministers are consulting on the long term arrangements for the management of Crown Estate assets in Scotland and will finalise the position on the future of the Coastal Communities Fund in Scotland in due course.
