The District also encompasses all estuarine areas, landward to tidal limits, occurring within the boundaries of member Local Authorities.

The Authority comprises 13 representatives from the 11 coastal Local Authorities within its area together with 14 members appointed by the Marine Management Organisation and one member nominated by each of the Marine Management Organisation, the Environment Agency and Natural England. The total membership of the Authority is 30.
