Live Consultations

Sussex IFCA runs regular consultations with its stakeholders as we develop regulations that protect our fisheries and conservation sites. We also run occasional informal consultations to gather views from the community on a variety of fisheries and conservation matters of interest. During these consultations we are keen to hear the views of all stakeholders so that we can build a good picture of evidence and opinions. If you have any questions about our consultations, then do not hesitate to contact us.

Beachy Head East MCZ
Informal Consultation Workshops

Have your say! Invitation to Beachy Head East (BHE) Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ) fisheries management informal consultation community workshops.

Sussex IFCA are about to start their public consultation process on the fisheries management of BHE MCZ. MCZs are managed by different government organisations and here, it is the legal duty of Sussex IFCA to ensure all fishing is sustainable within this protected environment. 

The MCZ community workshops are supported by Marine Conservation Society's Agents of Change project and are an opportunity to understand and influence future management. The workshops precede the Sussex IFCA's formal consultation on specific byelaw measures. 

The workshops will be run in pairs and, to get maximum benefit, you are encouraged to attend both if possible. Please be aware that, to support constructive conversation and information sharing, the workshops have a limited capacity. Following the workshops, Sussex IFCA will share an online questionnaire to support the participation of those who could not attend in person and/or if attendees wish to provide additional information.
