SFF puts forwards views on off-shore marine plans Published:  27 March, 2013

The Scottish Fishermen’s Federation is attending a Project Advisory Group (PAG) meeting in Edinburgh today to consider the draft report “Developing the Socio-Economic Evidence Base for Offshore Renewable Sectoral Marine Plans in Scottish Waters”.

The meeting is being attended by Kenny Coull of the SFF, along with other representatives from key stakeholder groups.  This work will feed into the Socio Economic Assessment which, along with the Strategic Environmental Assessment and Habitats Regulation Appraisal will contribute to the completion of the Sustainability Appraisal, which in turn serves to inform stakeholders in the public consultation process for offshore renewable developments.

The SFF also participates on the PAG for the Strategic Environmental Assessment and the Habitats Regulation Appraisal.
