Aquatic Management Plan

Poole Harbour Aquatic Management Plan 

The Aquatic Management Plan has been implemented to promote the safe and sustainable use of Poole Harbour, balancing the demands on its natural resources, minimising risks and resolving conflicts of interest.

This updated version of the Poole Harbour Aquatic Management Plan has consolidated and updated its previous iterations (1994, 2006 and 2011), and the 1998 Poole Harbour Management Policies, and has drawn on many other current planning and guidance documents.

This document is a non-statutory Plan produced by the Poole Harbour Steering Group, a voluntary partnership made of Poole Harbour Commissioners, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council, Dorset Council, Environment Agency, Marine Management Organisation, Natural England,  Southern Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority and Wessex Water Services Ltd.
