Marine Licensing in Scotland

Fife coastlineCertain activities require a marine licence before they can be carried out in Scotland’s seas. Licensable activities may include, but are not limited to:

  • The deposit of substances or objects into the sea or onto the sea bed
  • The removal of substances or objects from the sea bed
  • Construction, alteration and improvement works
  • Dredging
  • The deposit or use of explosives

Marine licences, which replace consents previously issued under FEPA and CPA, are issued by the Marine Scotland Licensing Operations Team (MS LOT). MS LOT provides a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all marine licence applications in Scottish waters.
