Historic Environment Projects and Activities within Marine Conservation Zones

Author(s): Paul Salmon

Historic England plays a unique and diverse role in the management of marine heritage within England’s marine area with obligations under the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 (MCAA) to ensure it considers the stated conservation objectives of Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) and are best furthered. With 50 MCZs currently designated and the potential for more to be created Historic England has commissioned this project to better understand how MCZ management could affect historic environment activities. Additionally, the project also helps identify the actions Historic England needs to take to ensure that the activities it supports are compatible with the conservation objectives of MCZs.
