The problem of the common use of goods defines the problem researched in this paper as joint management of coastal zone and its development in local communities. Previous researches demonstrated how coastal zone resources belong to the category of commons, wherefrom a potential problem of excessive and uncontrolled exploitation, usurpation and general devastation arises. The paper analyses stakeholders and their activities and interests connected with coastal zone development within local communities. The research was conducted based on an analysis of stakeholder groups that could influence the implementation of maritime projects to contribute to the development of the coastal zone, thus contributing also to the regional development and economic growth. This approach can be used by local communities as well as higher level public authorities for future development of their coastal zone, with the purpose of making efficient and sustainable key management decisions for addressing coastal zone issues.
