The size of the Coastal Communities Fund is equal to 50% of the revenues generated by the Crown Estate's marine assets. From its marine activities in 2012-13, the Crown Estate generated £1.2 million of revenue in Northern Ireland. This formed the basis for calculating the 2014-15 Northern Ireland Coastal Communities Fund budget of £0.6 million.
