Specific Funding Programme:

EU INTERREG IV A ‘Two Seas’ Cross-border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013 and part-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund)

About the Project:

The CSCOPE (Combining Sea and Coastal Planning in Europe) Project had 3 main objectives:

  • Develop a framework for integrating terrestrial and marine planning;
  • Tools for achieving sustainable coastal economies and environments; and
  • Stakeholder engagement to achieving commitment to Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM)

The project was in part a way to test the principles for MSP as communicated in the European Commission’s “Roadmap for Maritime Spatial Planning: Achieving Common Principles in the EU” published in 2008, prior to the development of the EU Maritime Spatial Planning Directive, and recognising that MSP would be required in coming years.
