Details

The aim of this seascape sensitivity assessment is to help stakeholders assess the sensitivity of Marine Character Areas/ Seascape Character Areas to defined development types and scales of change incorporating the consideration of seascape quality and value.

Seascape and marine character assessments now cover all of the English marine plan areas through the implementation of project MMO1134 (MMO, 2018), along with the Seascape Characterisation for the East NECR106 (Natural England, 2012b) and South in MMO1037 (MMO, 2014) Marine Plan Areas. These fulfil the initial part of the Marine Policy Statement seascape requirements, namely ‘character’. This approach now considers how to assess quality, value and capacity to accommodate change.
