Which marine spatial plans exist?

Legal framework

The Spatial Planning Act adopted in 2017 (OG no. 61/17 – ZUreP-2) requires the MSP plan to be prepared in the form of an Action Programme for the implementation of the Slovenian Spatial Development Strategy at sea. This latter is a strategic document, which applies to both land and sea.

The maritime spatial plan of Slovenia will be a concrete maritime plan; it will set goals and guidelines for all maritime activities and uses at the sea and in the coastal zone.
