Governance Policy S-INF-1

Land-based infrastructure which facilitates marine activity (and vice versa) should be supported

Policy Considerations

  1. Proposals should identify land based infrastructure which supports marine activity. Evidence should be provided which assess the potential imapct on land based infrastructure from the proposal. Land based development plans should be considered as part of this. 
  2. The Coastal Concordat should be used for proposals where both land based planning and marine planning need to be taken into account. 
  3. Any infrastructure on land that is associated with developments in the marine area should be considered in deliverying marine plan objectives.
  4. Marine activities and associated infrastructure should be considered when drafting or amending a local plans.
