This half-day seminar, being held in association with the Marine Management Organisation, will help planners to understand key aspects of the emergent Marine Spatial Planning System, which applies to inshore and offshore waters.

Key speakers will provide an update on progress since the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 and compare the continuing development of Marine Spatial Planning with the terrestrial planning system. The importance of partnership working will be discussed, and funding opportunities that are available will be highlighted.  A speaker from the private sector will outline recent experience and draw on relevant case studies.

We are very grateful to the Borough Council of Kings Lynn & West Norfolk for hosting this event.
