Governance Policy S-CO-1

Proposals will minimise their use of space and consider opportunities for co-existence with other activities.

Policy Considerations

  1. Co-existence means proposals can be undertaken without significant impediment to other activities in the same area. They may be separated spatially (vertically or laterally) or undertaken at different times.
  2. It may be beneficial for proponents to demonstrate the extent to which the proposal will co-exist with other existing or authorised, but yet to be implemented, activities and how this will be achieved.
  3. Proposals should consider the impact on current and known future users of the same marine space. For example, offshore static installations could change mobile sediments to solid substrate resulting in a change in habitat.
