Understand the impact of vehicle movements on land, linked to marine projects
Marine activities can have landward impacts but statutory advisors do not always have the information to advise marine regulators on these impacts.
The MMO would like to identify where and how landward vehicle/vessel movements are impacting on the marine environments. This should particularly explore the sensitivities of local communities and tourism to landward vehicle/vessel movements. It should also examine how these impacts can be assessed, allowing effective and appropriate consideration of these impacts within the licensing framework.
