Express your opinion on the current state and future scenarios of marine areas on 10 April–10 May 2019

The foundation of the Maritime Spatial Planning is created by the overview of the current state consisting of several different reports. Based on the current state, the maritime spatial planners have drafted future scenarios for the marine area with Capful Oy in the lead and in co-operation with stakeholders during this winter and spring.

You can give feedback on the overview of the current state and the scenario drafts between 10 April–10 May. You can find the materials and the link to the digital feedback form here.

The work will continue in May–June by drafting the regional future scenarios together with stakeholders. The future scenarios define the direction for creating the maritime spatial plans. You can find the schedules and locations of the regional future workshops here.

The aim of the scenario work is to define the most probable future scenarios and evaluate their impacts. This way, the foundation is created for the objectives, “roadmaps” and planning reservations to be defined in the maritime spatial plans.

Maritime spatial plans are the vision of the guidelines regarding the future use of marine areas to be created by the regional councils of coastal Finland and the Åland Islands in cooperation with stakeholders.
