Tourism and Recreation Policy TR2

Proposals that require static objects in the East Marine Plan areas should demonstrate, in order of preference:

  1. that they will not adversely impact on recreational boating routes
  2. how, if there are adverse impacts on recreational boating routes, they will minimise them
  3. how, if the adverse impacts cannot be minimised, they will be mitigated
  4. the case for proceeding with the proposal if it is not possible to minimise or mitigate the adverse impacts

Policy Considerations

  1. Proponents may wish to identify any navigational issues that may be affected by the proposal.
  2. In identifying the possible effects of static objects, proponents may wish to consider consulting with the appropriate decision maker, and it may be beneficial to demonstrate where consultation has taken place with both the national boating industry, the Royal Yachting Association, and local boating organisations within a proposal.
  3. Proponents may wish to consider boating routes as well as industry representations within a proposal to ensure the activity can continue and grow.
  4. Public authorities should look for evidence of consultation with the recreational boating sector, the outcome of those discussions and any mitigation agreed within a proposal.
  5. A proponent way wish to consider including a map of the location of the development and its relation to recreational boating routes within a proposal.
