Abstract: 

Sectoral marine planning (SMP) for marine renewables is providing a foundation for the development of these new offshore industries. The planning process combines technical analyses of opportunities and constraints, together with broad public consultation to ensure that resultant Plans are a robust basis for sustainable development. Practical experience has emphasised the importance of using the best available data relating to the available resource, environmental characteristics, and current uses. A number of examples are described for which data improvements are needed.
