Summary Of Responses To The South Arran Marine Protected Area Designation Consultation In 2014

In late 2014 (before the designation of the South Arran Marine Protected (MPA) Area in July 2014) COAST carried out a campaign consultation, in addition to Marine Scotland’s standard consultation, amongst its supporters to determine how they perceived the creation of the South Arran Marine Protected Area, what they saw its main purpose as and how they thought it should be managed. The 1,311 responses were given to Marine Scotland for their consideration in the MPA designation process. In addition, a further 93 responses were sent directly to the Scottish Government regarding the South Arran MPA, as part of the standard consultation response.
