Lead Marine Adviser Natural England


On behalf of the 'North East Kent Marine Protected Area' 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 Action Plan 2013-18 was drafted by the Management Group and coastal stakeholders and volunteers. This plan included the re-branding of management framework from the existing ‘N.E. Kent European Marine Site’ to the 'NE Kent Marine Protected Area' to incorporate the Thanet Coast Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ) designated in November 2013 - along with numerous other actions.
