MMO - coming soon near you - marine plan development workshops

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is holding marine plan development workshops throughout the UK between January and March 2018:

There will be three planning workshops in the South West.

  • Newquay: Tuesday 6 March 2018
  • Plymouth: Wednesday 7 March 2018
  • Weston-Super-Mare: Thursday 8 March 2018

The workshops are an opportunity to feedback on the draft visions and options for marine planning in the south west. You can also make comments on our Iteration 2 online engagement tool which will open between Monday 29 January 2018 until Thursday 29 March 2018. We will be opening the online engagement in advance to give you an opportunity to consider the materials for engagement ahead of the workshops.

The workshops will show how the process to develop the south west marine plan is progressing, and how the information from previous engagements is being used.

This workshop will provide an ideal opportunity for stakeholders to continue their input to the development of marine plans. The engagement will focus on:

  • draft marine plan area visions
  • draft options to address issues in each marine plan area
  • Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day

You can register for any of the events on this Eventbrite page:

NB: The workshops are full day events with lunch and refreshments provided. The workshops will all follow a similar structure, but with the main content (the draft vision and options to address issues) being varied between marine plan areas. As spaces at workshops are limited, we would appreciate it if you would avoid holding places and only book for your chosen workshop in your preferred marine plan area. All workshops will run from 9.30am-3.30pm.

We are also holding workshops for the north west, south east and north east marine plan areas. For more information please visit our Eventbrite page.
