Draft National Marine Plan

marineplan maprThe draft National Marine Plan was laid before the Scottish Parliament on 11 December 2014. 

You can view or download the National Marine Plan (NMP) here and GIS data for the NMP can be found here.

A new webpage will be hosted on the Scottish Government website  to make the wide variety of material available related to marine planning easier to access, and more user friendly.  

This will be known as “NMP Online” and will bring together and provide links to key documents for the National Marine Plan and other supporting  documents (e.g.  research projects, reports, guidance, publications).

The Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee (RACCE) will be scrutinising the draft plan and it will refer to the written responses received by the Scottish Government during its recent consultation. 

The Committee intends to ask the stakeholders it invites to give oral evidence to either forward on a copy of their original submission to the Scottish Government and /or to provide additional evidence following the publication of the draft plan.  The Committee is also happy to accept written submissions from any stakeholders who wish to provide additional evidence on the same basis. 

The deadline for any additional written evidence for RACCE Committee’s consideration is 12 noon, Monday 5 January 2015 and it should be sent to racce.committee@scottish.parliament.uk. The RACCE Committee contact is Alison Wilson, Assistant Clerk, 0131 348 5242, alison.wilson2@scottish.parliament.uk
