About Coast Communications

Since its creation, Coast has grown to become one of the south west’s foremost agencies, operating from four locations across the region.

Our core specialisms are in the economic, environment, engineering, education and planning sectors, with team strengths that include campaigns, community engagement, consultation and public affairs as well as internal and transformation communications.

For Coast it’s all about relationships – listening, responding and creating. We work hard to establish rewarding partnerships with our clients and their partners, bringing them together with our wide-ranging network of contacts to inform, engage and communicate.


Coast Communications was part of the original project team and worked on the award-winning South Devon Link Road scheme for over six years – from creating the original business case for Government funding, through initial consultations, and the public inquiry to providing PR, communications and community engagement whilst the road was under construction. The project was recently presented with the Community Engagement Award at the national British Construction Industry Awards, which recognises the outstanding public engagement that took place.

We have been shortlisted for two other prestigious industry awards. Coast Communications were a finalist in the Best Public Sector Campaign category in the 2016 Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide Awards.

We were also shortlisted for six categories in the UK Public Sector Communications Awards.
