Digital Marine Plan Consultation

Closed 27 Jan 2017

Opened 7 Nov 2016


The MMO is undertaking a project to make marine plans more useable, accessible and interactive. An example of a digital marine plan has been developed to demonstrate how marine plans could look in the future.

The digital marine plan will include modern design, imagery and interactive elements and could include:

  • Guidance video on the Marine Information System (MIS) to show a user how to find additional information;
  • A live map of the plan area which could be updated with data on a monthly basis;
  • Interactive images on the policy which provide links to sources of data;
  • Interteractive links to technical plan area documents and sources of data.

Why We Are Consulting

The MMO want your views on the layout and format of the digital marine plan. Your feedback and responses to this consultation will shape how future marine plans are presented in the future.

In parallel the MMO is currently running a formal consultation on the Draft South Marine Plan which can be found using the link at the bottom of this page. This consultation runs from the 7 November 2016 to 27 January 2017.

We value your comments and time taken in responding to both of our consultations.

What Happens Next

The MMO will review and carry out analysis of all the responses submitted to the consultation. They will feed directly into the next iteration of the marine plan.
