What is Marine Spatial Planning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The United Kingdom marine area is far greater than that of its landmass. The coastal areas and seas have provided convenient food, transport and waste disposal for centuries, as well as contributing to man’s identity and sense of well-being. In recent years, biodiversity and the potential of biotechnologies from the oceans have increasingly been identifi ed as important. A detailed and intricate web of legal and policy instruments relating to the marine environment has, therefore, developed to control and regulate the use of the sea. Until recently, this has not
been considered in a holistic way. The passing of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 was a landmark in the development of sustainable marine management for UK waters. In particular, it introduced a requirement for marine planning.
