As part of the roll-out of new Marine Plans for the North West of England a number of drop-in events for members of the public to attend are being held by the Marine Management Organisation from 18th-20th April. The events are an introduction to marine planning, for you to meet your local marine planner and to find out more about what marine planning involves, and how you can get involved. The MMO will also be demonstrating their Marine Information System and the evidence base where you can view some of the evidence they have already gathered for your area.
The events are open sessions, including a number of scheduled presentations on marine planning. These will be held hourly, beginning at the start times shown below.
As part of the events you will also be able to find out more about our consultations on the Statement of Public Participation and the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report. The Statement of Participation includes details on how and when and to whom the MMO will engage with through the marine planning process. The Sustainability Appraisal assesses the social, economic and environmental impacts of a marine plan.
