Marine Scotland has launched their consultation on the geographical extent of Scottish Marine Regions earlier today. It will be open for responses until the deadline of 18th February 2011. The consultation document can be downloaded from http://scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2010/11/22125407/0.

Once the geographical extent of the Scottish Marine Regions is defined, the government intends to delegate regional planning functions to Marine Planning Partnerships which will develop regional marine plans.

Marine Planning Partnerships will comprise representatives from a wide range of stakeholder interests, including public authorities and representatives that reflect the commercial, recreational and conservation interests of that region, for example, renewable energy, oil and gas, sea fisheries, aquaculture, conservation, recreation and tourism, ports, harbours and shipping.
