The South Plans Analytical Report is a summary of the evidence and issues for the South Inshore and South Offshore marine plan areas. The information in this report will be used to inform the next steps in the planning process, such as generating the plans’ vision, objectives and policies. The work to produce the report and supporting evidence has been informed by discussions with a range of stakeholders both within the plan area s and beyond.
This report was released for formal consultation, from 23 September to 1 November 2013 (see section 1.4), and used as supporting material for a series of workshops held along the South coast during October 2013. Following this it was refined to incorporate comments from the formal consultation and workshops. The SPAR also presents a refined list of core issues for marine planning in the South marine plan areas. In keeping with stakeholders' views, a single report has been produced covering both the South Inshore and South Offshore plan areas.
