Marine plans have an important role in helping to realise social benefits across the marine plan areas. Opportunities exist to improve people's wellbeing through promoting activities for healthy lifestyles and helping to reduce deprivation by creating jobs. Ensuring that the natural and historic environment are protected and maintained can help to stimulate investment, support sustainable tourism, engender pride, facilitate a sense of place and promote health and wellbeing.
