Scottish Marine Regions
Layer shows boundaries of the 11 Scottish Marine Regions as set out in The Scottish Marine Regions Order 2015, which came in to force on 13 May 2015. This is a simplified version of the SMR boundaries, using planar rather than loxodromic connecting lines. For most purposes, this will suffice.
The boundaries identify the areas for preparing and adopting regional marine plans. Regional Marine Planning will be taken forward by Marine Planning Partnerships. The National Marine Plan and Marine Policy Statement will apply in areas where there is no regional marine plan yet in place.
