Dear Welsh Government/Llywodraeth Cymru,

I would be grateful if you could provide me with any copies of documentation, including (without limitations) external and internal correspondence, minutes and briefing notes, which would explain when and how you went for a Highly Protected version of a Marine Conservation Zone.

Also could you provide me with any copies of documentation, including (without limitations) external and internal correspondence, minutes and briefing notes, in regards to research into the socio economics and stake holders for the site selection process.

Extract from Protecting Welsh Seas'

'Criteria for the identification and selection of MCZs in Welsh waters will be developed, agreed and used through a robust site selection process, incorporating ecological information, socio-economic information and stakeholder dialogue. This will ensure that sites are chosen to maximise ecological and socio-economic benefits while minimising any conflicts with different uses of the sea as far as possible.'

Yours faithfully,

Claire Russell Griffiths

George, Louise (ESH - ECM),
