The documents referred to below relate to the Swallow Sand MPA. Most of them were produced during the site selection and designation process.

The information available here includes:

  • Site Summary Document – overview of the site and the protected features
  • Latest factsheet, map and details of Designation Orders (available on Defra's website).
  • Summary of responses on a change in the GMA – a period to comment regarding a change in the General Management Approach for Subtidal sand within Swallow Sand MCZ was run between 23 October and 4 December 2017. JNCC produced a summary of the response to comments received during this period.

The Swallow Sand MPA site information centre is the most up-to-date source of information for this MPA, and will reflect any additional information gathered since these documents were produced.

Please note, these documents were produced prior to the launch of JNCC's new website. Whilst every effort has been made to redirect material to the relevant content on the new website, some of the links within these documents may no longer work.
