Seaward Boundary Reviews: Policy and Practice

25/01/17
Guidance

This is our Seaward Boundary Reviews: Policy and Practice document that has been created in anticipation of new energy projects in Welsh territorial waters which necessitates the changing of seaward boundaries to bring them into principal council areas.

The Commission has produced this booklet which affirms the procedures and methodology we have adopted in respect of seaward boundary reviews the Commission conducts.

In order to make recommendations to Welsh Ministers, the Commission may carry out reviews of the seaward boundaries of principal areas in response to a direction from Welsh Ministers or by its own volition. The way the Commission conducts a review is defined by legislation and may be guided by directions issued by Welsh Ministers.

This Seaward Boundary Reviews: Policy and Practice document sets out the Commission’s policies and procedures that will be applied in order to meet the obligations as set out in legislation.

This document is available in Welsh.
