Guidelines for Planning Authorities
The University of Liverpool have developed a guide and country fact sheets to support people involved in planning and development on land think about the marine environment in their work.
The guide and fact sheets provide advice on how to incorporate marine planning into land based planning. The guide also explains the role that land based planning can play in reducing the impact that onshore development has on the marine environment, helping to make the seas healthier.
The work aims to promote integration of planning for the land and the sea by encouraging connection between terrestrial planning, the delivery of the EU’s Marine Strategy Framework Directive and the new systems of marine planning.
