Since this advice was provided Defra has held a formal public consultation and JNCC has provided additional post consultation advice for sites proposed for designation in 2013. In July 2013, JNCC provided its post consultation advice on the six proposed offshore MCZs (pMCZs) which Defra indicated had a potential case for designation in 2013.
