Consultation description

The MMO is now launching consultation on draft plan Options.

The Options process focuses on the consideration of different ways of achieving the draft plan objectives and vision, to make sure that the choices made and their implications have been considered.

We have produced an Options report, Options map annex, Options policies PDF and Options policies Spreadsheet

This is an informal consultation on the Options report and it will run for four weeks from the 3 February to the 4 March 2015.

There are a number of consultation questions we would like you to address in your response:

  1. Which is your preferred option? In answering this question, please note it is not possible to select a combination. However, in your response to question 3 you can tell us if you prefer a combination of the options.

  2. Why do you prefer this option?

  3. Would you make any changes to this option and, if so, what? Would you like to combine aspects of different options into a new option? For example, if you prefer option 1 for objective 1 but option 3 for objective 2, please tell us.

  4. Do you agree with the intent of the policies? If not how would you change them?

  5. Please indicate those issues you feel are out of scope (eg. those appropriate for signposting rather than marine plan policy).

Please respond to the consultation via the online consultation tool
