Invitation to comment from the MMO - South West Marine Plans

Marine plans for the South West are moving forward. You may have attended our recent launch events in the South west; if you couldn’t make the event this is a reminder that we would welcome comments on the draft Statement of Public Participation and the Scoping Report for the Sustainability Appraisal by the deadline of Friday 13 May.

For those who couldn’t make the April events, presentations from the events are in the book above.

The next stage of the marine plans will be to complete the consultation on the Statement of Public Participation and the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report. The consultations which were launched on Monday 11 April will close on Friday 13 May. You can find out more (and provide comments) about the consultations here. Following this stage we will also be starting to look at the issues and evidence for each of the marine areas in summer later this year.

If you would like to be kept up to date with the development of marine plans please subscribe to our marine planning newsletter. If you would like to receive this please email

If you have any specific queries regarding marine planning, or feel a direct one-to-one meeting would be beneficial pleased contact me direct.

We look forward to meeting you again (or for the first time) at our forthcoming Evidence and Issues workshops.
