Marine licensing: A guide for Local Planning Authorities (LPAs)

Since issues with licensing was raised as an barrier to completing projects by members of the Coastal SIG, South Tyneside Council have been championing efficiency working with the Marine Management Organisation (MMO).

Following on from a number of meetings with the MMO senior licensing team, a guide to marine licensing processes for Local Planning Authorities has been produced. The document includes advice on the licensing process, and references other relevant matters such as exemptions and the new self-service marine licensing process.

These documents are available on the .GOV website and also on the SIG website under Resouces > MMO Licensing or please click here.
