Lead Marine Adviser Natural England
On behalf of proposed North East Kent Marine Protected Area Management Group
(formerly the North East Kent European marine sites Management Group)
The Management Scheme aims to safeguard important marine and coastal wildlife and habitats, whilst allowing activities to take place without damaging these features. It includes specific action plans to achieve the effective management of the marine protected sites.
The new Action Plan (2013-18) was drafted by the Management Group and coastal stakeholders and volunteers. The action plan includes the re-branding of management framework from the existing ‘N.E. Kent European Marine Site’ to the new 'NE Kent Marine Protected Area' and will incorporate the new Thanet Coast Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ) designated in November 2013 - along with numerous other actions.
The Action Plan for the next six years (2013-18) can be downloaded or viewed here:
