Which marine spatial plans exist?

Legal framework

The Spatial Development Programme (SDP) of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern was extended to the 12 nm zone during the realignment in 2003-2005. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is the first European coastal state that has integrated designations for single uses in the 12 nm zone into its regional development program. The extended program was adopted a first time in 2005 and became a legally binding act.

In the years 2013-2015, the SDP was updated; Mecklenburg-Vorpommern intended to intensify its comprehensive and multidisciplinary spatial planning to support the sustainable future development of the federal state and benefit its inhabitants. The updated SDP reflects current challenges, development trends and framework conditions and was adopted by ordinance of the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in 2016, becoming a legally binding act.
