Development of sector locational guidance has focused on:

  • tidal stream energy
  • wave energy
  • aquaculture - available 2022

We have focused on these because:

  • they are identified in the marine plan as having sustainable growth opportunities
  • they can benefit from an accessible, applied, fit for purpose and structured evidence base
  • the collation and interpretation of relevant datasets and new evidence is achievable

You can access spatial data through the Marine Planning Portal.
