COAST response to the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee Regional Marine Planning inquiry Interim Report.
The ECCLR Committee published an interim report on its inquiry into regional marine planning in Scotland earlier this year. As part of the interim report, the Committee set out a series of questions which they put to various stakeholders.
The Regional Marine Plan Inquiry webpage can be found here, and other stakeholder responses can be read here.
COAST understand that the Committee is commissioning academic research on international approaches to marine planning, the results of which they will review in late 2020. We believe that they view to produce a final report based on research and calls for views in early 2021.
