Closed – consultation – Marine Plan Areas Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report (all remaining plan areas)

Closed on13th May 2016

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is seeking feedback on the draft Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report for the North West, North East, South West and South East marine plans (inshore and offshore) and associated documents.

All the remaining marine plans will be subject to an integrated Sustainability Appraisal (SA) and Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and this scoping report is the first formal output of the SA process. The report provides baseline information on the environmental, social and economic characteristics of the marine plan areas, including the likely evolution of the baseline without the marine plans in place. The scoping report is the primary mechanism for consulting on the scope and level of detail of the SA.
