East marine plans: decision makers' workshops

A report that summarises outputs of the workshops and highlights actions and next steps for implementation and monitoring.



The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) held 3 workshops in September in Hull, Peterborough and London to identify how public authorities and the decisions they make may be affected as a result of an adopted marine plan.

The workshops aimed to:

  • update decision makers on the marine planning process to date and discuss the MMO’s approach to implementation
  • share experience of making decisions using plans and related monitoring
  • discuss implementing and monitoring marine plans in non-MMO decision making
  • identify actions and next steps with a view to establishing an implementation and monitoring plan for the East marine plans
