Government prepares to transform marine planning

Ireland’s government has opened a two-month consultation on its plans to unify all aspects of the marine economy and environment, proposed in a document released.

The draft Marine Planning Policy Statement was launched by three ministers and ministers of state, at the Our Ocean Wealth summit in Cork on 10 June. The aim is to integrate ocean planning across all areas, including marine development and enforcement, a government spokesperson said. This will include local and state authorities, as well as Ireland’s government.

The policy statement sets out different activities to be undertaken in response to climate change, the development of ocean energy, and meeting carbon release limits set by the EU.
