Protection of coastal and marine habitats and species is also highly important in Slovenia, also considering the ecosystem service they provide to support some of the economic activities, as specifically coastal tourism and fisheries.
Which maritime spatial plans exist?
Slovenia has not started the official planning yet; however some preliminary activities have been initiated: (i) development of the methodological basis for MSP implementation in Slovenia; (ii) preparation of the cartographic basis for MSP.
MSP Directive in Slovenia will be implemented in the framework of the Spatial Planning Act adopted in 2017 (OG no. 61/17 – ZUreP-2): no additional legislation is needed for the implementation of the MSP directive.
The Spatial Planning Act requires the MSP plan to be prepared in the form of the Action Programme for the implementation of the Slovenian Spatial Development Strategy at sea. This latter is a strategic document which applies to both land and sea. Currently, the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning is coordinating the preparation of a new Spatial Development Strategy of Slovenia at 2050.
