    Abstract

    The management of human activities in the marine environment will be a central function of marine planning. Therefore, stakeholder involvement will be crucial for the successful development and subsequent implementation of marine plans. Due to the infancy of the process in England, the role of stakeholders has yet to be clearly defined. This research project endeavoured to establish the role of stakeholders in the marine planning process through critical analysis of potential involvement within the Solent. Through a group administered questionnaire, stakeholder opinions were elicited on their desired involvement with the marine planning process. A stakeholder analysis was completed to establish the most efficient and effective means of involvement by determining who should be involved and when and how they should be involved during the marine planning process. Additionally, a model for the management of stakeholder involvement was developed by drawing on international experience with marine planning.
