Historic Scotland has launched public consultations on:
- a strategy for the protection, management and promotion of marine heritage 2011-16, and
- guidelines for the selection, designation and management of Historic Marine Protected Areas (Historic MPAs).
The guidelines set out how they will apply the provisions in the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010 relating to Historic Marine Protected Areas; the strategy sets out Historic Scotland’s priorities for the period 2011-16.
They would greatly appreciate it if you could take some time to provide your thoughts on these documents.
The consultations are available to download together with ‘respondent information forms’.
Should you choose to respond, it is important that you complete and return a ‘respondent information form’ with your comments, because it tells them how you want your response to be treated.
You can email the form if you are responding on-line, or alternatively, you can post the form to us along with your written comments.
The consultations close on 27 January 2012.
