8. Do you have any views on the management approach identified for the appraisal?

There were comments made in 38 responses.

The themes identified for this question were:

a) Measures in the approach are too limited to adequately protect PMFs

b) Measures should be pragmatic and not cause unnecessary restriction to activity

The management approach will be assessed in the Sustainability Appraisal along with reasonable alternatives described under question 9. It is our view that the combination of these reflect both of the themes which emerged under the question.
