New Data Added to Marine Planning Portal

The Marine Management Organisation’s Marine Planning Portal has been recently updated with new data. The portal allows anyone logging on to view a range of information and locations – from details of wind farm developments to conservation areas – and understand how busy our seas have become. It offers an easy way to be involved in marine planning, allowing the user to view specific areas and aspects of the marine environment, and share comments.

The new data includes information on:
·       Marine Protected Areas
·       Defence and national security
·       Energy production and infrastructure development
·       Ports and shipping
·       Marine aggregates
·       Marine dredging and disposal
·       Subsea cables
·       Fishing activity
·       Aquaculture
·       Tourism and recreation
·       Marine ecology and biodiversity
·       Historic environment.
