History of the Development of Proposals

The management measures for the offshore MPAs and SACs have been under development since 2013. Marine Scotland have engaged with both local stakeholders and representatives of other EU Member States at a number of workshops to discuss and develop the proposed measures.

Below are the associated site level papers and minutes from these discussions.

The current iteration of these proposals was discussed at the workshops in Edinburgh on the 20th and 27th October 2016.
