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
