Crown Estate Foreshore Permit

Post by mrix » Mon May 24, 2010 11:23 am

Hello all this topic was originally posted in the Beach detecting forum as a sticky but as it is a permissions related topic and a very useful at that I have also made it a sticky within this forum :)

Metal Detecting on Crown Estate Foreshore
Anyone wishing to go metal detecting on Crown Estate foreshore will require a permit.
This page contains a brief description of The Crown Estate’s general position regarding metal detecting and treasure hunting on our foreshore.

Applying for a Permit for Metal Detecting on Crown Estate Foreshore
Note – this does not apply to searching below the foreshore, i.e. on the seabed for which a separate consent may be required. Please direct any enquiries over seabed searching to:

The Crown Estate generally seeks to encourage access over, and responsible use of, the foreshore and as a result our consent for non-commercial metal detecting on the foreshore will not incur a charge. Foreshore in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is defined as the land between mean high water and mean low water. In Scotland the definition is between mean high water of spring tides and mean low water of spring tides

Hope this is not a daft question, but does the Crown Estate have any land away from the foreshore?

Thanks for the info, after reading your post I took the plunge.

Permit came through by email instantly, just adds some other locations to search.

It's a shame the Duchy of Cornwall doesn't appear to operate a similar scheme... :(

Well whilst not actually posessing the land they do own any Gold that comes out of rivers and streams.
They, Mines Royal AKA The Crown Estates issue licenses to pan and extract Gold from the rivers of England Wales and some rivers in Scotland.

Thats the problem we now have in N Wales where some idiot loved digging HUGE holes in the river. Despite several warning he carried on and now Goldpanning around the Dolgellau area is banned as Mines Royal Refuse to issue licences. (not that anyone actually had one in the first place !!)

For what it's worth I just got detailed maps for my area which shows Crown Estate land extending about 8Km inland all the way up a large estuary and up lengths of various channels, creeks and the River.

The permit page appears to be down at the moment I have emailed to make them aware if they did not know their end :)

I applied online for this permit but have not yet recieved anything, does it take a while to process as it was a fair while ago I applied for it, or am I just being impatient =))

deanothehunterI got one last week for someone on my email address and it came back in less than 5 minutes. From that I thought it was just an automatic reply service.

Hi Deano
Might be worthwhile checking your junk mail to see if it got filtered out as I applied for mine last week and like most others that have replied on this thread I too received my permit within minutes of applying.
