South West Marine Plan Iteration 3 Engagement

Closes 29 Mar 2019

Opened 21 Jan 2019

Overview

The South West Marine Plan policies have been developed with supporting text covering the What, Where, When, Why, Who and How to implement. These policies are also supported by a signposting section which sets out relevant legislation, policy, cross border planning requirements and other relevant evidence and best practice. The policies, supporting text and signposting sections aim to address the issues identified throughout the marine planning process in the south west marine plan areas.

Why We Are Consulting

The MMO has been developing marine plan policy during the Iteration 3 planning stage. We are seeking your views on the marine plan policies and their supporting text. We would like you to consider how the policies will work in practice and what changes may be required to enhance their functionality. Your responses will be used to form the draft of the South West Marine Plan.

Through their development, the marine plan policies have been grouped using the sustainable development principles under which the high level marine objectives (HLMO) are grouped. These are set out in the Marine Policy Statement (MPS). To simplify the stakeholder experience the surveys have been categorised according to three of the HLMOs: economic, environmental and social. The remaining two HLMOs, good governance and sound science, underpin all of the plan policies.

Please respond via this online survey setting out your comments with any amendments. The policies and paragraphs in the templates have been numbered to make identification easier.

This survey will be available online from 21st January to 29th March 2019.

We would like to hear your views
