The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is holding two marine planning workshops in the south east, you have selected the one in Chatham on Wednesday 13 February 2019, 

The workshops form part of our Iteration 3 Engagement and are an opportunity to comment on the preferred draft policies produced as part of the south east marine planning process. You can also make comments on our online engagement tool which will be available between 21 January and 29 March 2019. We will be opening the online engagement in advance to give you an opportunity to consider the materials for engagement ahead of the workshops.

The workshops will show how the process to develop the South East Marine Plan is progressing, and how the preferred draft policies have been developed following feedback from the Iteration 2 Options Workshops in early 2018 and the Call for Issues with Supporting Evidence in 2016.

At the workshop you will discuss policies and their supporting text, and how they can address the area’s economic, social, and environmental issues. This is an opportunity for stakeholders to contribute to the development of the preferred marine plan draft policies ahead of the statutory consultation on the draft marine plans in late 2019.

The workshops are full day events with lunch and refreshments provided. They will all follow a similar structure, but with the main content being varied between plan areas. As spaces are limited, we would appreciate it if you would avoid holding places and only book for your chosen workshop in your preferred marine area.

Not able to attend?

We are holding another south east marine planning workshop in Chelmsford on Tuesday 12th February 2019 at the County Hotel from 9:30am to 4:00pm, as well as workshops for the north west, north east and south west marine plan areas. For more information please visit our eventbrite page.
