Which marine spatial plans exist?

Legal framework

The main legal act regarding MSP is the Act on sea areas of the Republic of Poland and the maritime administration of 21 March 1991.

In order to implement Directive 2014/89/EU, the Polish Parliament amended the Act on 4 September 2015 regarding, inter alia, MSP procedure in Poland. Regulations concerning MSP are placed in Chapter 9: “Maritime spatial planning in maritime internal waters, territorial sea and exclusive economic zone”. This chapter describes the whole procedure, basis and principles of developing maritime spatial plans in Poland.

The supporting law is the Ministerial ordinance on required scope of MSPs in their textual and graphic parts.
