urges the UK Government to convene a ministerial conference
The Committee urges the UK Government to convene a ministerial conference
that seeks to deliver the urgently required political and strategic vision
that will sustain the North Sea for generations to come.
The Committee recommends that the UK Government work with other North Sea
Member States on the development of a pilot marine planning project in
the North Sea
The report also calls for English local authorities be more engaged in
North Sea co-operation, and to work with the UK Government to identify
and address barrier to their co-operation, which is currently minimal compared
to Scottish local authorities and those from other North Sea countries.
The Committee further recommends commitment to a single database, which
could then become a one stop shop, covering the costs not only of data
collation, but also of quality-assurance.
The Committee urges the Government to continue its work to overcome technical
obstacles to greater cross-border energy co-operation, such as trading
options and cost allocation, through the UK's involvement in the North
Seas Countries Offshore Grid Initiative (NSCOGI).
The Committee also urges the Government to show political leadership by
intensifying efforts to agree a joint recommendation for fisheries management
in the Dogger Bank area, where a failure to align economic interests with
environmental protection, has led to paralysis over the last four years.
"Government should think harder"
"We want the UK Government to take the lead in convening a Ministerial
Conference of North Sea states to deliver the urgently needed strategic
and political vision for the North Sea. We also think the Government should
think harder about developing our own long term plan for the North Sea
along the lines of the Dutch 2050 agenda.
“There is also a role for local authorities to play in stewardship of
the North Sea and ensuring opportunities for economic growth in their region
are not missed. We were surprised to learn that only one English local
authority takes part in the North Sea Commission compared to seven in Scotland.
There are clearly financial implications attached to membership, and we
understand that times are hard for local authorities so we think the Government
and the Local Government Association should look at how local authorities
can be supported to play an active role in the North Sea Commission.”
