This record provides Natural England’s advice on the Conservation Objectives for this European Site.
This site lies within both the inshore and offshore waters of England. The advice of the Joint Nature Conservation Committee should therefore be sought separately.
These Conservation Objectives are those referred to in the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (‘the Habitats Regulations’). They provide a framework which should inform any ‘Habitats Regulations Assessments’ (which may include an Appropriate Assessment) that a competent authority may be required to make under the legislation referred to above. In addition, they can be used to inform any measures necessary to conserve or restore the European Site and/or to prevent the deterioration or significant disturbance of its qualifying features.
The Citation represents a formal description of the reasons why the site has been classified as a Special Protection Area (SPA). This document was part of the formal consultation with owners, occupiers and stakeholders prior to the site’s classification, and now forms part of the entry for this site in the Register of European Sites.
