COAST response to the draft Clyde Regional Marine Plan pre-consultation. March 2019
“The marine and coastal environment of the Clyde Marine Region is clean, healthy, safe, productive, biologically diverse and accessible for all. It is managed sustainably to support productive and thriving coastal communities and to allow nature to flourish”.
“The Plan’s objectives and policies have been developed in accordance with a set of overarching Guiding Principles (GPs) which act as a top level filter for policy development. GP1, GP2 and GP3 represent fundamental aspects of marine planning as already set out in global agreements and EU, UK and Scottish strategies and plans. GP4 and GP5 establish the tone of the Plan.”
