Plymouth City Council

Outcome of Expression of Interest: Invited to apply

Due to our geographical nature, the coast and water levels play a major part in the way we live and work. Many of the residents in the Plymouth area are dependant on tides, water levels and conditions in order to commute, live, work and travel.

Through our adjoining coastline and waterways we would look to work with our neighbouring councils to be able to monitor and provide accurate and real time data for specific locations and areas of activity aligned with the sea.

This could be applied to residents to enable action and decision making, ferry routings, pleasure craft, slipways, moorings and mariners, fishing industries and other recreation activities  such as diving / wild swimming. We would look to provide a number of different data sets to ensure people, work, travel and homes are protected and that we will be able to act and react quickly if required according to the data we will receive or be able to model.

We would look to perform a gap analysis on the information that is available through the Plymouth Coastal Observatory in order to add additional data sets if/where required, but the fund would enable data to be accessed and presented so that it would be easily usable and understandable throughout the region.
