Guidelines on the selection, designation and management of Historic Marine Protected Areas
New marine legislation introduces a framework to enhance stewardship and sustainable development of Scotland’s seas through a marine planning system, streamlined marine licensing for developments at sea, and a system of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) to help conserve Scotland’s outstanding marine environment for future generations.
Historic Scotland is working with Marine Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee on the Scottish Marine Protected Areas Project, to make recommendations to Scottish Ministers on the development of a network of MPAs in the seas around Scotland.
This consultation invites views on Historic Scotland’s guidelines for selecting, designating, and managing Historic MPAs. Marine Scotland has published parallel guidance for Nature Conservation, and Demonstration & Research MPAs
