Research and analysis: National level environmental assessments


Requirement R020

Requirement detail

Some industry bodies have produced national level assessments, for example the Marine Aggregate Regional Environmental Assessments (MAREA) in the case of the aggregate industry, which aims to provide a strategic view of future marine aggregate extraction activities and their potential cumulative and in-combination effects to ensure that individual dredging permissions are suitable informed. This is incorporated into licensing applications which allows efficiencies for both MMO and industry. Further work with other industries is required for improvements and savings to the marine licensing process.

Other industries could be:

  • Subsea cabling
  • Local councils
  • Fishing industry
  • Ports and harbours
  • Renewables
  • Flood defence
