PlanCoast (2006—2008) is an INTERREG IIIB NP CADSES Project with the aim to develop the tools and capacities for an effective integrated planning in coastal zones and maritime areas in the Baltic, Adriatic and Black Sea regions. PlanCoast will show the strengths of spatial planning instruments to the benefit of an effective ICZM and maritime policy.
PlanCoast is going to:
- Introduce the completely new spatial planning instrument Sea-Use-Planning
- Link Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) with the processes of statutory spatial planning in selected number of pilot projects
- Spread the use of modern geographical information systems (GIS) for an effective transnational planning
- Contribute to the implementation of European policies and national strategies on coastal zones and maritime areas
PlanCoast has 16 partners representing the Spatial Planning Departments or responsible regional authorities from Albania, Bosnia–Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Italy, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and Ukraine. Bulgaria is represented by the District Administration Centre, Varna and the Black Sea NGO Network.
