To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they are considering for signage to explain marine protected areas to visitors.
The Government are not currently considering plans for signage to explain marine protected areas (MPAs) to visitors. For MPAs near to the coast, the Government would expect the relevant public authorities, including Natural England, to identify the need, and make provision, for display boards where appropriate. This is in accordance with their duties under the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006, and as proposed in the future by the Marine and Coastal Access Bill.
