PCF has been awarded £24,500 by Welsh Government to part fund the continuation of their Wales Activity Mapping Project.
Wales Activity Mapping (WAM) is a collaborative stakeholder project which provides detailed information on a range of marine and coastal activities, displayed in a GIS mapping system. The project will map the type, amount and location of recreational activities taking place on the South West Wales coastline, and will carry out ground-breaking work on carrying capacity and recreational impacts. Funding will also be provided by Natural Resources Wales and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
The Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths said,
“I am pleased we have been able to provide funding to continue the Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum’s Wales Activity Mapping Project. Updated data gathered from the project will help give us a better understanding of tourism and recreation activity along the South West Wales coastline. It will also help inform longer term work by Welsh Government to support the development of this important sector through the Welsh National Marine Plan.”
