The Marine & Coastal Access Bill – Getting the Balance Right

Charles Anglin

Communications Director, BWEA

About BWEA
  • BWEA represents the wind, wave & tidal sectors in the UK
  • Over 470 members, large & small from all sectors
  • 30 members of staff based in Westminster
slide3
Offshore wind industry
    • UK 15% renewable energy target by 2020 – 35% of electricity
    • SEA UK coastal waters to identify up to 33GW worth of potential offshore sites for wind farms
    • Round 3 process to allocate 9 zones complete by end of year – 20 - 25GW offshore likely by 2020
    • Marine policy could restrict ability to deliver on targets
slide4
Our view of the Bill
    • A good Bill – need new offshore planning regime
    • Support certainty over environmental designations
    • Offshore is working as well as living environment
slide6
Three main pinch-points in Bill
    • Marine Management Organisation
    • Offshore planning regime
    • MCZ designation
slide7
Marine Management Organisation
    • Must be more than just another nature conservation agency
    • Revised remit much better – “furthering sustainable development”
    • Resourcing remains a problem – need guarantees over energy & planning expertise
slide8
Offshore planning regime
    • Marine Policy Statement status
    • MMO relationship with IPC
    • Roll-out of Marine Plans
slide9
MCZ designation
    • Identification of potential sites based on science
    • Designation needs to consider wider socio-economic issues
    • Regional stakeholder panels secretariat must have socio-economic expertise
    • MMO should advise Ministers on sustainable development
slide10
Continuing the Dialogue
  • Industry wants to be responsible part of marine community
  • Must avoid false conflict between conservation vs sustainable development
  • Mustn't be excluded from ongoing process:
    • Marine Plans
    • Marine Policy Statement
    • Designation of MCZs
