Consultation description 

This is the first marine plan for Welsh seas. It covers the inshore and offshore marine plan areas for which Welsh Ministers are the marine planning authority.  
We are consulting on the draft Welsh National Marine Plan which:

  • introduces a framework to support sustainable decision-making for our seas
  • sets out our vision and strategic objectives
  • presents general policies (economic, environmental and social)
  • includes policies specific to the sectors that operate in our seas (aquaculture, aggregates, defence, etc.).
