Marine plans aim to better manage the competing demands on marine resources and ensure that sustainable development is incorporated into marine decision making.
Since the adoption of the marine planning system in the UK, Eunomia has been providing expert advice on the development of marine plans.
We have advised the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) on using Office for National Statistics data in the marine planning process and considered their relative suitability in meeting MMO’s requirements.
Our track record also includes the development of a number of studies examining the impacts associated with the introduction of Marine Planning. We have undertaken ex-ante assessments of the social, environmental and economic impacts associated with the introduction of marine plans in both England and Wales.
