Welcome to Coastal Concern Alliance

Coastal Concern Alliance (CCA) is an independent, voluntary group, set up in 2006 to campaign for:

  • Reform of the outdated and undemocratic legislation governing construction in Irish seas (The Foreshore Act 1933)
  • Introduction of a new planning framework to protect our coastal landscapes and marine environment

The future of Ireland’s coastal areas is a matter of great importance to many ordinary people who have no voice on this issue because of the serious democratic deficit embodied in the outdated legislation governing our coastal zone.
