Planning Scotland’s Seas consultation cover

Marine Scotland has launched a joint marine consultation today that will help decide how Scotland’s seas are managed in the future.

The joint consultation includes:

  • Scotland’s first National Marine Plan which will provide a single framework to manage all activity in Scottish waters. This will provide clarity to developers and decision makers on Scotland’s priorities for sustainable use of the sea
  • Proposals for a network of new Nature Conservation Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) which if designated would increase protection for Scotland’s iconic marine species and habitats
  • Draft sectorial marine plans which will guide development of a sustainable and successful offshore renewable energy industry in Scotland

    Some great articles being posted up on this blog, Im not sure why no one is available to discuss or comment on these posts. Brilliant post and only if more people could take interest in such concerns. Hope to read more.
