The information in this draft report has been drawn together to set out the evidence and identify the issues relevant to these marine plans 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 in order to gain feedback on the evidence and issues, we are carrying out a consultation on the South Plans Analytical Report (SPAR).
