This article deals with the concerns expressed by the British wind industry over the complexity of the government's Draft Marine Bill. The bill sets out proposals for a new planning regime for offshore development such as windfarms, wave and tidal generation. Trade body the British Wind Energy Association (BWEA) has made it clear that it wants decisions on Marine Conservation Zones (MCZ) to be made by the Marine Management Organization (MMO) rather than by ministers. The MMO as proposed would set overall planning policy for offshore areas.
