Economic Policy S-EMP-2

Proposals resulting in a net increase to marine related employment will be supported, particularly where they are in line with the skills available in and adjacent to the south marine plan areas.

Policy Considerations

  1. Proposals should show how they will increase marine related employment, including jobs that will use the skills available in and adjacent to the south marine plan area.
  2. Increases in employment can be direct and indirect employment. 
  3. Proposals should include details of any indirect employment, including where the employment is. 
  4. A definition of employment is available from the Office for National Statistics.
  5. The MMO report 'Maximising the socio-economic benefits of marine planning for English coastal communities' can help understand the employment needs and social issues of areas within, and bordering, the south marine plan areas.
