The draft maritime spatial plan, covering Finland’s territorial waters and exclusive economic zone and prepared in accordance with the Land Use and Building Act, has been completed. The draft plan was pre-pared by the councils of coastal regions in three parts:

  1. Gulf of Finland: Regional Council of Kymenlaakso and Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council;
  2. Archipelago Sea and Southern Bothnian Sea: Regional Council of Southwest Finland and Regional Council of Satakunta
  3. Northern Bothnian Sea, Quark and Bay of Bothnia: Regional Council of Ostrobothnia, Regional Council of Central Ostrobothnia, Council of Oulu Region and Regional Council of Lapland

The regional governments of the councils of coastal regions have made their own decisions to request statements from the authorities and entities to whose sectors or duties the plan is materially relevant and to put the draft on public display to enable opinions to be expressed in accordance with section 67 c of the Land Use and Building Act.

The draft maritime spatial plan and the key preparation materials will be on display from 18 May to 17 June 2020 on the Internet at http://meriskenaariot.info/merialuesuunnitelma/en/merialuesuunnitelma-english/.
