EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Marine Licensing (Notices Appeals) (Wales) Regulations 2011 (S.I. 2011/923 (W. 132)) (“the Principal Regulations”), which provide for appeals to be made to the First-tier Tribunal against certain notices issued under Part 4 of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 (“the 2009 Act”).

These Regulations amend the Principal Regulations to provide for appeals to be made to the First-tier Tribunal against notices varying, suspending or revoking a marine licence issued under sections 72A(7) and 107A(4) of the 2009 Act.

The Welsh Ministers’ Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to these Regulations. As a result, a regulatory assessment has been prepared as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with these Regulations in Wales. A copy can be obtained from the Welsh Government, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3NQ.
