    The Welsh Marine Zone: Challenges under the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009’


    Caddell-Welsh Asembly  

    On 15 March, Dr Caddell provided a briefing paper at the Senedd Building in Cardiff, at the invitation of Mr Andrew Davies AM, the Welsh Assembly member for Swansea West. Every year, a small number of academics from Swansea University are invited to deliver briefing papers at the Assembly, based on research that has significant implications for Welsh affairs. Dr Caddell delivered a briefing entitled, “The Welsh Marine Zone: Developments and Challenges under the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009”. The paper provided a full outline of the key powers that have been transferred to Wales in recent years under the devolution settlement and identified a number of challenges ahead for the Welsh Ministers as they seek to implement a network of Marine Conservation Zones under the 2009 Act. The event was attended by members of the Welsh Assembly, key environmental NGOs, marine renewable energy interests and members of the legal profession.
