Marine Milestone for England’s Seas

England’s first ever plans for the future of our seas have been published today. The marine plans - which provide much-needed guidance for sustainable development in English waters - cover the coast and seas from Flamborough Head to Felixstowe. They have been developed by the Marine Management Organisation on behalf of the Secretary of State Owen Paterson, who has formally approved the plans. An interactive tool explaining how marine plans affect your area also goes live today – the Marine Information System.
