The consultations just keep coming. This time it’s on proposals to designate a small number of very large SACs for harbour porpoise, so we can expect lots of opposition from industry and fisheries interests. Two are proposed off west Wales, one off Pembrokeshire, the other in the approaches to the Bristol Channel including Carmarthen Bay.
The consultation and all the maps and supporting evidence are available on the Natural Resources Wales website here. The closing date is 19 April.
