The East Inshore and East Offshore marine plans outline a vision for 2033 and are designed to include a number of objectives and policies which reflect the aims of the Marine Policy Statement within these plan areas.

This document, commissioned by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) and prepared by Eunomia, provides a largely qualitative discussion of potential impacts of the marine plans. It discusses current and expected future marine development in the absence of plans and provides an overview of how marine plans might alter future development. While not a technical document, it provides useful information for future analysis.

This document assesses impacts that solely relate to the East marine plan areas and does not consider impacts that relate to the marine planning system as a whole. Its focus on the East marine plan area means it cannot be used as a basis for assumptions about costs and benefits in other marine plan areas, or about the marine planning system as a whole. The final version of the marine plans, together with a range of accompanying documents, is available on the MMO website.
