Which maritime spatial plans exist?
Although it is not a Maritime Spatial Plan (MSP) in the strict sense, the National Spatial Plan for the integrated spatial development of the port for international traffic at Koper has some MSP implications. In the process of preparation of the National Spatial Plan for the integrated spatial development of the port for international traffic at Koper, the following main sectors were considered:
- Tourism (incl. recreation and sports)
- Nature protection
Slovenia does not have a special regulation on MSP. The reason is that obligations deriving from MSP Directive in Slovenia will be implemented in the framework of existing Spatial Planning Legislation: no new legislation is needed for the implementation of the MSP directive. The following laws are also important for the implementation of MSP:
- Spatial planning of arrangements of national significance Act,
- Promotion of Balanced Regional Development Act.
The Spatial Planning Act for Slovenia applies to three types of spatial plans: national, municipal and intermunicipal plans. On the basis of the Spatial Planning Act, a Maritime Spatial Plan will be prepared, in line with the Article 22, as a national strategic spatial plan, including the conception of spatial uses/arrangements of the sea. A Spatial Development Strategy is available in Slovenia; it is a strategic spatial planning document, prepared by the Spatial Planning, Construction and Housing Directorate of the Ministry of the
Environment and Spatial Planning, in force since 2004.
