Pre-consultation on the draft Clyde Regional Marine Plan took place between 18th March – 27th May 2019
The Clyde Marine Planning Partnership (CMPP) is developing a plan which will provide a framework to manage, effectively and sustainably, the economic, social and environmental needs of the Clyde Marine Region.
Legislation means that plans have to be prepared to protect and enhance our seas.
A National Marine Plan provides policies and objectives for the management of Scotland’s seas.
Marine planning will be implemented at a local level within Scottish Marine Regions. Regional marine plans will be developed, by Marine Planning Partnerships, to take account of local circumstances and smaller ecosystem units.
Scottish Ministers have given the task of developing a Regional Marine Plan for the Clyde to the CMPP and its Public Authority members. North Ayrshire Council is a member of the CMPP.
The Statement of Public Participation:
- sets out a timetable for plan development
- provides details of opportunities for engagement and participation with the development of the Regional Marine Plan
- describes the stages of plan development (eg when consultations will happen).
