The pre-consultation draft Clyde Regional Marine Plan
Consultation open: 18th March – 27th May
What is the pre-consultation draft Clyde Regional Marine Plan?
The Clyde Marine Planning Partnership (CMPP) is in the process of developing a Clyde Regional Marine Plan to create a framework for integrated, sustainable and co-ordinated planning and management of the Clyde Marine Region’s environmental, economic and community resources. The CMPP has worked together with regional stakeholders to create a pre-consultation draft Clyde Regional Marine Plan that addresses the local issues and pressures on the coastal and marine environment.
The CMPP is interested in your views on the pre-consultation draft Plan and would like to hear your ideas on how it can be developed and improved. This pre-consultation phase is the first opportunity for wider stakeholders and the general public to read the draft Plan and provide feedback. The pre-consultation draft Plan will be revised based on your feedback and will then be shared again during a 12-week statutory consultation.
What does the pre-consultation draft Clyde Regional Marine Plan include?
The Plan begins with the Vision and Aims for the Clyde Marine Region then gives background information about how the Plan has been developed and will continue to be developed, and how the Plan should be used. The pre-consultation draft is organised into two sections: (1) General Policies that provide an overarching framework for the sustainable development and use of the marine and coastal environment; and (2) Sector Policies that relate to the key, current economic activities taking place in the Clyde Marine Region. The draft Plan includes chapters on the following topics: climate change; historic environment; landscape/seascape; coastal processes, coastal flood and storm damage alleviation; natural heritage; non-native species; marine litter; general policies for all sectors; sea fisheries; aquaculture; sport, recreation and tourism; shipping, ports, harbours and ferries; defence; energy, subsea cables and pipelines; and marine aggregates.
