Functional linkage: How areas that are functionally linked to European sites have been considered when they may be affected by plans and projects - a review of authoritative decisions (NECR207)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

This report aims to provide an analysis of authoritative decisions which considered effects from projects being considered for authorisation on areas of land or sea that were considered to be functionally linked to a European site, but which lay outside the boundaries of the site. It is intended to serve as a referencing tool for use by Natural England to inform a review of its approach to casework in light of interpretations of the Habitats Directive and Regulations.
