Adoption of Marine Plans marks big step forward for England’s seas

The adoption of Marine Plans marks a big step forward for England’s seas.

The Government has adopted and published the North East, North West, South East and South West Marine Plans. The publication of these four marine plans follows the adoption of the East Marine Plan in 2014 and the South Marine Plan in 2018. This means all England’s seas – an area of approximately 230,000 square kilometres – a third larger than the total land area of England – are covered by Marine Plans.
