What we do

We represent you by responding to government consultations and marine licence applications and by taking part in liaison groups with the statutory agencies, Marine Scotland and with the Scottish Parliament. The Cruising and General Purposes Committee is charged with overseeing these tasks. Most of the work is carried out by volunteers who operate to professional standards providing objective evidence in support of or against developments. RYA Scotland has a network of coastwatchers who each look after a section of coast. They are attached to the Cruising and General Purposes Committee and work with the Planning and Environment Officer.

Responses to marine licence applications can be found in the section on Marine Licence Applications. However, this does not include responses to other government consultations. You can also find out more about what we do in the Annual Report.

What you can do

If you have concerns about developments in your area please contact the office at admin@ryascotland.org.uk.

Although we are informed about marine developments, this is not the case with land-based planning applications and Local and Strategic Development Plans and we rely on members telling us about any contentious ones so we can provide an appropriate response. Clubs and indeed individual members are encouraged to respond themselves, ideally copying RYAS into the response.
