Our coast is in high demand and this can be complex to manage. PCF’s expert team brings the community together to deliver innovative solutions to coastal challenges. We are dedicated to ensuring Pembrokeshire remains the unique place we all love, for future generations to enjoy.

Pioneering work has included creation of a Marine Code and Outdoor Charter for Pembrokeshire and an online Wales Activity Mapping tool used to inform sustainable development nationally together with the inception of Marine Energy Pembrokeshire in 2010 and Marine Energy Wales in 2016; bodies which work to establish sustainable marine energy generation.

Committed to delivering bespoke support for coastal collaboration as required; from community based activity to international project delivery.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

“The relationship building, network and communication that the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter has provided is invaluable. Having members take out 100,000s of young people, it is important from a National Trust perspective that they know this is being carried out in the right way. The Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter collaborative approach and independent conflict management gives a confidence that activities are being carried out sustainably. The Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter is viewed as a model for best practice on a UK level by the National Trust.”

Jonathon Hughes, National Trust Property Manager for Pembrokeshire

“Having the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group in place makes 2 way communication much easier and passing on NRW conservation messages through to the wider public is important. It enables a consistent management approach across Pembrokeshire with impartiality needed for any conflict management. The development of best practice using a partnership approach is also a key positive from NRW.”

Paul Cuyler, Natural Resources Wales

“MEP is a unique forum for informed discussion, promoting a collaborative approach to marine energy development. This is extremely useful for a developer considering a project in Wales.”

Gavin McPherson, Nova Innovation

“An extremely informative but highly enjoyable day. It certainly was a challenge, but one which we are looking forward to working on to pass on our knowledge. The enthusiasm of the experts rubbed off on the students. Thank You.”

Ms Richards, Portfield School

“The Marine Energy Pembrokeshire Seminar was the most positive ocean energy conference I have attended.”
