Questions this practice may help answer

  • What are the issues to be addressed in marine planning, in the South Inshore and South Offshore marine plan areas?

Implementation Context

To support the development of marine planning in England, the Marine Management Organisation (MMO), the responsible authority for marine planning, undertook a number of activities to facilitate marine planning across the six marine plan regions (which will total 10 marine plans).

The South Plans Analytical Report (SPAR) summarises the evidence and issues for the South Inshore and South Offshore marine plan areas. This includes identifying relevant issues and will inform the next steps in the planning process, such as generating a vision, objectives and then options. The report has been revised following feedback and workshops during the consultation.

Aspects / Objectives

The SPAR summarises the evidence and issues for the South Inshore and South Offshore marine plan areas. This includes identifying relevant issues and will inform the next steps in the planning process, such as generating a vision, objectives and then options.

Method

The finalised report includes:

  • the evidence being considered in marine planning
  • analysis of the evidence to inform the issues
  • a list of issues to be included in the marine planning process for the South marine plans and
  • a summarised set of core issues that could be addressed through marine plans

The information in the draft report has been drawn together to set out the evidence and identify the issues relevant to these marine plan areas and to inform the next steps in the planning process, such as generating a vision, objectives and then options.

This document has been informed by policy analysis, data and stakeholder input, and a consultation, to ensure the Marine Management Organisation has the best available evidence and understanding of the issues from the South marine plan areas.
