Sound Of Arisaig mSAC Management Scheme

This management strategy for the Sound Of Arisaig mSAC has been compiled to deliver the objectives of the Habitats Directive, whilst taking into account the needs of the local communities. It has been prepared by a management group comprising elected councillors, officials from the relevant agencies and representatives of the local interest groups.

It is the key management advice applicable to this site and can be downloaded for individual reference in pdf format by clicking here.

The strategy plan shown small scale below can also be viewed at larger scale by clicking on the map image.

The strategy represents a voluntary agreement between those statutory agencies that will implement the scheme and the local communities which use and have a vested interest in the area.

Whilst not a statutory instrument in itself, it should assist the agencies in fulfilling their statutory responsibilities as set out in the Habitats Regulations and other documents.

The strategy also sets out a mechanism for monitoring and review which will enable the lead agency to track progress and to reconvene the forum if any changes to the strategy are required in the future.

Sound of Arisaig SAC area

The Natura 2000 designation for the Sound of Arisaig represents both an accolade and a new area of responsibility. The communities of this area and the public authorities serving it recognise both of these aspects. They will work together to ensure that the marine nature conservation interest here is sustained for future generations and managed as far as possible in harmony with the economic interests of the area.
