The LGA Coastal SIG, MMO and Defra have collaborated to develop a workshop specifically aimed at coastal council officers and planners with an interest in marine licensing and the Coastal Concordat. This collaboration comes as a result of requests from our senior officers group (SIGSOG) on the need for clarification on a number of related matters.
The event will be a series of informative presentations, interactive sessions and discussions to ensure that participants glean the information that they need and we thank all those officers who have already supported the development of this workshop by providing detail on the areas where further understanding is needed.
Content will include:
- MMO Overview/area of responsibility
- Marine Licensing Overview
- Marine Licensing Process
- Environmental Impact Assessment
- Coastal Concordat
