The Crown Estate


Our role is to manage and enhance the value of our coastal assets. This includes issuing licences or leases for aggregates, aquaculture, and cables and pipelines. We are also responsible for marinas, moorings, and have an interest in at least parts of many ports and harbours.

  • Marine minerals, primarily sand and gravel extraction, although we also have interests in potash
  • Over 900 aquaculture sites that provide valuable employment and generate wealth for local communities, particularly in remote areas of Scotland
  • Managing thousands of leases or licences for works and activities with ports, harbours, moorings and marinas
  • Providing leases and licences for the many telecommunications cables and gas and oil pipelines which crisscross the seabed within 12 nautical miles of the UK coastline.
