The Trust has issued a joint statement on the proposed “Highly Protected Marine Areas” (also often referred to as “no-take” zones) legislation which has set a target of 10% of Scottish sea area to be given the new designation. Consultation on the proposed legislation is currently ongoing until April 17th.

The joint statement can be found on the Tiree Community Council website here: http://tireecommunitycouncil.co.uk/hpmas-full-statement-by-tcc-and-tiree-trust/

The Trust will be submitting our own response to the consultation shortly.
