Project Details


Analyses of opportunities, conflicts and scenarios for the use of marine area in the Sound in relation to the sustainable development of the environment, business, economy, job creation and welfare and preparation of a proposal for a trans-national marine plan for the Sound. In the recently initiated work on the Danish marine plan, the authorities have not taken a position on how this plan should be developed, what tools can usefully support the planning process and in the Danish law only a limited number of sectors are included. Furthermore, the authorities have not taken a position on how the more dynamic data such as environmental data, recreation and welfare should be handled and incorporated into the planning process. A final but important aspect is how to involve transnational planning in an area such as the Sound. The project 'Maritime Spatial Planning - The Sound' will demonstrate the use of a range of planning tools, integrate dynamic data, include the Swedish plan proposal for their part of the Sound and prepare a proposal plan for the whole Sound.
