To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on allocating money raised from the devolved Crown Estate to the Coastal Communities Fund.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 14 September 2017
Scottish Ministers are committed to delivering the funding for the current Round 4 of the Coastal Communities Fund in 2017-18. Following this, the future role of the Coastal Communities Fund in Scotland will be determined.
The Crown Estate Bill will establish a framework for the management of, and revenue from, Crown Estate assets in Scotland to ensure that local communities are able to benefit from the coastal resources of the estate. We are considering how best to distribute net revenue from Crown Estate marine assets out to 12 nautical miles on an annual basis.
