Habitats regulations assessment

What is a habitats regulations assessment?

Habitats Regulations Assessments (HRA) will be undertaken for all Development Plan Documents to assess possible effects of the plans on the nature conservation interests of 'European' sites designated under the Habitats Directive and the Birds Directive. These sites consist of Special Areas of Conservation and Special Protection Areas and, as a matter of Government policy, Ramsar Sites.

Screening of the Core Strategy was undertaken during preparation of the preferred options and reports of the assessment published alongside the topic papers:

A Habitats Regulations Assessment Report has been prepared to accompany the pre-submission Core Strategy:
