Red Rocks and Longay Marine Protected Area: business and regulatory impact assessment

Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment (BRIA) which looks at the social and economic impacts of the designation of the Red Rocks and Longay Marine Protected Area (MPA).

Implementation and Delivery Plan

The designation and management measures are proposed to be delivered by Ministerial Order and Scottish Statutory Instrument no later than 10th March 2023. Once designated, public bodies will have to take any authorisation or enforcement decision in accordance with the provisions defined in legislation to protect MPAs. If specific management measures are required for the site they will be developed and be subject of their own assessments, consultation, and implementation phase. Every 6 years a report is laid in the Scottish Parliament  which details progress of the MPA network towards achieving its objectives.
