Local Planning Pilots (SSMEI)

CoastlineThe Scottish Sustainable Marine Environment Initiative (SSMEI) is a unique and innovative approach to develop an overall marine planning framework for Scotland. The SSMEI aims to develop and then test the benefits of possible new management framework options for the sustainable development of Scotland's marine resources through the establishment of a number of pilot projects.

The initiative has entered its third and final phase, with four pilots now established in Berwickshire, Clyde, Shetland and the Sound of Mull. Further details are available in the Local Planning Pilot (SSMEI) pages.
