The figures for rents received for piers and marinas in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are in the table.

The information for Scotland is not readily available prior to the current financial year. This is because information held on foreshore lease arrangements in Scotland in previous years cannot readily identify income from piers and marinas. However, the estimated income for the current financial year in Scotland is £95,000 from piers and £60,000 from marinas, and this would be indicative of income in previous years.

1997 9,375 574,960
