Guidance on Marine Licensable Activities Subject to Pre-Application Consultation

New Requirement for Public Pre-Application Consultation

From 6 April 2014, certain activities will be subject to a public pre-application consultation requirement. Activities affected will be large projects with the potential for significant consequences to the environment, local communities and other legitimate uses of the sea. The new requirement will allow those local communities, environmental groups and other interested parties to comment on a proposed development in its early stages, before an application for a marine licence is submitted.

A copy of the guidance for this process is available below:
