Shetland Isles Marine Planning Partnership

The Shetland Isles is one of the first of two areas to take forward regional marine planning.

The proposed delegate and draft direction were announced in a public notice in the Shetland Times on 12 February 2016. On 22 March 2016, Scottish Ministers gave a Direction to prepare a regional marine plan to the Shetland Fisheries Training Centre Trust (operating as the NAFC Marine Centre) and Shetland Islands Council, which together make the Shetland Isles Marine Planning Partnership.

A copy of the Ministerial Direction and guidance notes can be seen below:
