Government seeks views on marine development

07 June 2022/Categories: Ports, Maritime & Waterways, Net-Zero

The Government has launched a consultation to gather views on a sustainable approach to marine development  which will aim for the UK to meet it's ambitious target to reach net zero while supporting the recovery of our ocean. Underwater image of the ocean.

Marine net gain (MNG) aims to improve the state of the marine environment by protecting, restoring or creating environmental features of greater ecological value than any losses associated with marine infrastructure projects.

Marine net gain will work alongside biodiversity net gain (BNG) to ensure nature and biodiversity are at the centre of all decision-making and design, both on land and in our marine environment.

The consultation is now open and will run for 12 weeks until 30 August 2022. Responses will be reviewed and used to help design the approach, including how gains could be implemented and which marine infrastructure projects are in scope.
