Priority Marine Features
The National Marine Plan proposes that Priority Marine Features should be specifically taken into account in future planning and decision making.
The SSA has compiled this response following consultation, as usual, with our member Scottish Governing Bodies (SGBs).
As part of the SSA’s discussions with our members, in relation to Priority Marine Features, the SSA has compiled this response following consultation with our Outdoor Pursuits Group, which contains representatives from 20 of our member Scottish Governing Bodies (SGBs) involved in outdoor and adventurous activities.
These inputs in some cases involve clarification of terms and in others are directly linked to ensuring the discussed plans optimise and do not inhibit the practicing of sport in and around Scotland’s marine areas and the substantial economic and social benefits that come from this.
