Your chance to attend - Marine Planning South West: Policy Development (Newquay)

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is holding three marine planning workshops in the south west, you have selected the one in Newquay on Tuesday 5th February 2019, Sands Resort Hotel from 9:30am to 4:00pm.

The workshops form part of our Iteration 3 Engagement and are an opportunity to comment on the preferred draft policies produced as part of the south west marine planning process. You can also make comments on our online engagement tool which will be available between 21st January and 29th March 2019. 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 preferred draft policies have been developed following feedback from the Iteration 2 Options Workshops in early 2018 and the Call for Issues with Supporting Evidencein 2016.
At the workshop you will discuss policies and their supporting text, and how they can address the area’s economic, social, and environmental issues. This is an opportunity for stakeholders to contribute to the development of the preferred marine plan draft policies ahead of the statutory consultation on the draft marine plans in late 2019.
The workshops are full day events with lunch and refreshments provided. They will all follow a similar structure, but with the main content being varied between plan areas. As spaces are limited, we would appreciate it if you would avoid holding places and only book for your chosen workshop in your preferred marine area.
Not able to attend?
We are holding two other south west marine planning workshops in Totnes on Wednesday 6th February 2019 at Dartington Hall, and in Taunton on Thursday 7th February 2019 at Taunton Racecourse, both from 9:30am to 4:00pm. We are also running workshops for the north west, north east and south east marine plan areas. For more information please visit our eventbrite page.
