Tourism and Recreation Policy S-ACC-2

Proposals demonstrating enhanced public access to and within the marine area will be supported.

Policy Considerations

  1. Proposals should show how they will enhance public access, such as removing unsuitable existing access and the provision of replacement access arrangements are to be provided.
  2. Any alternative access (including temporary and cumulative impacts) needs to be appropriate for the setting, including potential impacts on biodiversity, heritage assets, seascape, access and use for recreation and tourism.
  3. Where relevant, early engagement with land owners and other relevant parties is strongly recommended.
  4. Proposals must assess postive and negative impacts in line with relevant legislation. Enhancement is not a substitute for avoidance, protection or mitigation measures in relation to existing access.
