Welcome

The marine planning portal is an interactive mapping tool that allows you to contribute to the marine planning process in two ways:

1. Comment on draft MMO data layers

Please note that the consultation for the East Inshore and Offshore Marine Plans has now closed.

The MMO is currently undertaking a number of research projects to further our understanding of the activities, resources and environmental features in the marine plan areas. As draft data layers are produced they may be available to view and comment on via the planning portal. Where you wish to comment on a draft data layer and these comments are best made as a spatial rather than a free text response, you can do so here using the 'comment' tab.

2. Comment on our evidence base

Use the interactive map to view and comment on the marine planning evidence base (currently being used to plan for the south inshore and offshore plan areas). This will include both data owned by third parties and draft data layers produced by the MMO. We welcome suggestions of existing new data to help strengthen our evidence base.

Use the  icon next to the data layer to view further information on the data, including its owner, origin and the date it was uploaded to the portal. As new datasets are developed or acquired by the MMO they will be uploaded to the portal as soon as possible (where the MMO is authorised to do so). 

Please note that users must be logged in to make a comment.
