Northeast Regional Planning Body

The Northeast Regional Planning Body is responsible for developing New England’s ocean plan. The National Ocean Policy, established by Presidential Executive Order in 2010, called for the formation of nine Regional Planning Bodies to better manage the nation’s oceans and coasts. New England was the first region in the nation to respond to this call, launching the Northeast Regional Planning Body in 2012. The Northeast Regional Planning Body includes representatives from the six New England states, 10 federally recognized tribes, 10 federal agencies, and the New England Fishery Management Council. The Regional Planning Body has no authority to create new regulations. Its mandate is to create a plan and oversee its implementation, with many opportunities for public participation.
