Maximising the socio-economic benefits of marine planning for English coastal communities
This report seeks to help the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) maximise the socio-economic benefits of the marine planning process. It was written by a team from Roger Tym & Partners and Oxford Consultants for Social Inclusion (OCSI).
2 This report aims to help marine planners meet that challenge set by the Marine Policy Statement (MPS). The MPS requires marine planners to plan in such a way that “benefits society as a whole,” and contributes to resilient and cohesive communities “both in regeneration areas and areas that already benefit from strong local economies”.
