The LSI analysis should be understood as an important component in the preparation of MSPlans to be reached through consistency of policies and decision-making. In Greece, although LSI as a term is fully incorporated in MSP legislation, its consideration may be easily and completely disregarded, given the contradicting provisions introduced by L.4759. This paper suggests that consideration of LSI in MSP in Greece (which is a highly insular and coastal country), can be achieved if: interaction between MSPlans and TSPlans is (re)established by Law; LSI analysis is incorporated as binding step in the MSP; the so far sectorial orientation of MSP is suppressed in favor of a more place-based approach; governance schemes give priority to local administration and communities; international cooperation is encouraged; the Multi-Use concept is integrated in Greek MSP.
