DEFRA includes Swale as MCZ in second tranche

Defra has published a consultation on the second tranche of Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) today, inluding the “Swale Estuary.” At first read, boating and angling are not likely to be affected but there are mysterious references to “designated anchorages” and hints about restrictions on maintenance/navigation dredging. Defra’s consultation on Tranche 2 sites runs from 30 January 2015 to 24 April 2015.
