South marine plan areas options consultation summary

Following our recent public consultation on the options stage of the South marine planning process we are pleased to share our options consultation summary. The consultation ran from 3 February to 4 March 2015 and at the conclusion of the consultation period 165 individuals representing over 100 organisations provided responses, either on-line, by email or through the workshops.

The consultation process was supported by a series of workshops to raise awareness of the proposed options and to canvass stakeholder views towards a preferred option for developing the marine plan policies for the South marine plan areas.

Workshops were held in:

  • Brighton (11 February 2015)
  • Southampton (12 February 2015)
  • Exmouth (13 February 2015)

You can access the options consultation summary report from the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) website.
