Report of second SG meeting

The full report from the second of our six scheduled regional stakeholder group meetings is now available.

The meeting was held on May 5th near Preston. During another full day of activities organised by our facilitator, Diana Pound, group members continued to build a ‘shared understanding’ of each other’s interests and priorities.

They also heard more about the project’s Ecological National Guidance, the key document that lays out which and how much of various habitats and species should be covered by Marine Conservation Zones.

The 43 members of the stakeholder group are the people who will come up with recommendations for the sites and sizes of Marine Conservation Zones in the Irish Sea.

To find out more about the work of the regional stakeholder group, visit the Have Your Say pages of our website.

Even if you are not on the stakeholder group, you can have your say on Marine Conservation Zones in the Irish Sea project area by contacting either your sector spokesperson or one of our liaison officers.
