MarineSpace Completes Marine Aggregate Application Sustainability Assessment

MarineSpace has recently completed an assessment of the sustainability of a major marine aggregate extraction application in the Outer Bristol Channel. The work, undertaken for the Resource Management Association (RMA), reviews relevant national and regional development and mineral planning policy and investigates possible alternatives to the resources being applied for by the RMA. The assessment goes on to discuss the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the proposals and is designed to form an intergral part of the application, along with the environmental impact assessment and dredging management plans.
