MSP BG 2023


The Council of Ministers approved the draft Maritime Spatial Plan of the Republic of Bulgaria with a time horizon until 2035. With the approval of the Maritime Spatial Plan, Bulgaria makes a definite request to join the countries that have complied with their obligation under the Directive 2014/89/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of July 23, 2014 to establish a framework for maritime spatial planning. The Law on Maritime Spaces and Inland Waterways and Ports of the Republic of Bulgaria stipulates that the document be updated every 10 years. If necessary, this will be done in a shorter period of time.

The plan will make it possible to sustainably use the natural features and resources in the Black Sea maritime space and for the development of economic activities in compliance with environmental protection. It does not foresee a change in the way of permanent use of the coastal territories, as well as investment initiatives or new construction in accordance with the normative framework for territorial planning.

The adoption and implementation of the Maritime Spatial Plan of the Republic of Bulgaria represents a step towards more sustainable use of the Black Sea and its more effective protection.

Congratulations to our colleagues from the Bulgarian Competent MSP Authority (the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works) and the National Center for Regional Development (MSP planners) for this great achievement and to everyone contributing to make it happen!
