Thu 28 NovemberThe Marine & Coastal Access Act2009 set out important new provisions for the management of our marine natural resources including marine conservation zones and marine spatial plans. In addition to this the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive is also highlighting important areas where progress is being sought. Whilst recognising that we are learning and working our way through these new programmes a host of difficult issues are arising from the implementation process. The aim of this conference is to discuss a number of key issues affecting marine natural resource management, and as an outcome prepare some clear statements of how progress might be made.
