Statement of Public Participation for the Clyde Regional Marine Plan
Please note that the SPP will be reviewed and updated, usually at the end of each stage of the planning process, to provide further details on future events. Revised versions will be added to this page. More regular updates on events and consultations will be provided on the Consultation and Events page and advertised via our newsletter (sign-up via the box at the top right of this page) and twitter – @clydemarineplan.

Clyde Marine Region Assessment
Please click below to view and download the Clyde Marine Region Assessment. The Assessment provides baseline information on the condition of the Region to support the development of the Clyde Regional Marine Plan under the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010.
As the marine planning process moves forward, any additional or new information that comes to light as a result of stakeholder and issues work streams and public consultation will be taken into consideration during development of the Plan.
To increase the accessibility of information in the Assessment, the CMPP has also prepared Topic Sheets. These are two-page summaries of the key information from selected chapters and can also be downloaded below.
Under the Clyde 2020 project, two animations have also been developed, one focusses on outlining the process of how the Assessment was developed and the second summarises the condition of fish, shellfish and seabed habitats in the CMR. The second animation is accompanied by a written summary; this and the animations are available to view below.

Pre-consultation draft of the Clyde Regional Marine Plan
A pre-consultation draft of the Clyde Regional Marine Plan has now been developed, along with an interim Sustainability Appraisal, including Strategic Environmental Assessment. These documents are currently open for consultation from the 18th March – 27th May. To view these document and to take part in the consultation, please visit this section of our website.
The CMPP will be running a range of events during the pre-consultation for people to learn more about the consultation, ask any questions or provide feedback. To see the full list of events, please visit the Events page, which has full details.
In October-November 2017, the CMPP conducted a Public Dialogue process with local communities from Tarbert and Greenock. The aim of the exercise was to involve people who would not necessarily engage with marine planning in order to gain their views on the development of the Regional Marine Plan. Please see the report below for the full findings of the process. this work was carried out by Collingwood Environmental Planning (CEP) and the Scottish Association for Marine Science Research Services Limited. In 2018 CEP were shortlisted as a finalist for two Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) Research Excellence Awards – the Sir Peter Hall Award for Wider Engagement and the Consultancy Award.

Towards the end of 2017, the CMPP carried out a project aimed at engaging young adults in marine planning. The project worked with pupils from three schools around the region, using an interview methodology called ‘Streamline’ to elicit views and aspirations from young people to determine their vision for the region. The full report on the project is available to read below.
