Clyde Marine Region Assessment 2017

Attached is the Clyde Marine Planning Partnership’s 2017 assessment of the Clyde Region.

The 2017 Assessment is presented as an up-to-date and comprehensive review of environmental, social and economic trends and issues at the Clyde Marine Region level. It provides a baseline from which to measure progress and identifies issues which need to be addressed in the region and which may be suitable for policy within the Regional Marine Plan.

The proposed developments at Hunterston are mentioned in various sections but little detail about the potential impacts or issues directly relating to our coastal environment. In terms of the marine spatial plan, it seems that Southannan SSSI is a loser in the marine spatial plan and is zoned for industrial development.

The chairperson and team from Clyde Marine Planning Partnership will be making a presentation to the Fairlie community on the 5th February 2018. The public meeting will take place in Village Hall and opportunity to provide feedback on marine and coastal issues around Fairlie.
