Green Shores Local Government Group

The purpose of the Green Shores Local Government Group is to enhance the capacity of staff and elected officials who work with landowners and other stakeholders in shoreline planning and protection through the Green Shores program.

This work is especially important in light of climate change adaptation and the need to integrate Green Shores with other key planning and community engagement processes.

Our Services

SCBC offers facilitation and technical support to local governments to assist with implementation of Green Shores (Green Shores for Homes and Green Shores for Coastal Development) in their community.

SCBC can help local governments with research, community education, local action planning, community engagement, and evaluation.

In addition, the SCBC produces, with our partners, a variety of resources on Green Shores such as educational materials, guides, case studies, and other policy documents. Some of these materials are only available to Local Government Group members.
