Press Release - Alderney Marine Forum Community Survey
For immediate release: 20th March 2017
In February, the Alderney Marine Forum launched a consultation via a postal survey to engage the community in the development of a marine management plan for Alderney. The information collected from these surveys will be used to inform the development of a marine management plan to support the sustainable use of the sea around Alderney for the benefit of the whole community. Thank you to all residents who have provided their views so far.
The deadline for contributions is fast approaching and the Forum would like to invite any residents who have yet to provide their views to do so. Copies of the survey can be found at the Harbour Office and the Island Hall. Survey participants are requested, where possible, to return their responses to the dedicated post boxes at these locations as soon as possible. If you would like your survey to be collected from an alternative location please let Catherine Veron (details below) know and a collection time can be arranged.

Its international team of scientists and policy analysts are part of a global network to place biodiversity at the heart of decision-making for the benefit of people and planet. The dedicated marine programme within the centre has a wealth of knowledge and expertise within marine planning, undertaking projects at international, regional and local scales.
