Prohibited Area

The ocean management plan establishes three categories of management areas: Prohibited, Renewable Energy, and Multi-Use. The Prohibited Area is coincident with the Cape Cod Ocean Sanctuary, within which a variety of uses, activities and facilities are expressly prohibited by the Ocean Sanctuaries Act, as amended by the Oceans Act, and are therefore prohibited under the ocean plan.
