Proposed ‘No Anchor/Mooring’ zone
Mark has asked that I circulate the attached to you for comment from MHHUA.
The Haven holds a number of habitats, species and environments requiring protection as features of the Pembrokeshire Marine SAC. Two such features which are known to be extremely sensitive to damage by disturbance of the fundus are the Zostera and Red Maerl beds in the lower reaches of the estuary.
In order to safeguard these features, in line with the management of the SAC, it has been proposed that ‘No Anchor/Mooring’ zones should be implemented in areas of particular susceptibility. Attached is a draft chartlet showing the two areas (bordered and shaded red) which have been proposed.
I would be grateful if you would indicate a time scale in which you would be able to gain and forward comment from MHHUA members so I can advise Mark. Any forthcoming comments can then be address either to me or directly to Mark. If you need additional or electronic copies of the chartlet please let me know.
