Funding Awarded for Coastal Erosion Study

Posted by CBAG on February 20, 2022

We are pleased to announce that CBAG have been awarded funding from Aberdeenshire Council’s Coastal Communities Challenge Fund (CCCF) to conduct a coastal erosion study. This study seeks to understand the potential impact of coastal erosion on the braes surrounding Catterline Bay, and the longer-term project seeks to protect these braes from coastal erosion. The study will build on the data and experience gathered by Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of Aberdeen to date.

The CCCF distributes revenues generated by Crown Estate Scotland, with applications being assessed and approved by NESFLAG – the North East Scotland Fisheries Local Action Group – a cross-sector partnership comprising representatives from Aberdeenshire’s coastal and fishing sectors.
