8.1 Interpretation of Part 6A - Boundaries

The Order currently states that for the interpretation of 6A:

"The area of an existing fish farm or of equipment of a fish farm, is the area which, if the anchorage or mooring points used in relation to that fish farm or equipment were to be connected by straight lines, would be enclosed by such imaginary lines."

There may be cases where the area described on a planning consent is greater than the area enclosed by the mooring points described above. We believe that the interpretation in 6A should be amended so that the area of an existing fish farm is defined as the area described in the existing planning consent. This will allow operators to make the most use of their consent under PDR. Where the area of the farm has not been previously described, the seabed area should be taken as the area enclosed by the mooring points as described above.

Question 17 - Do you agree with the above approach?
