These Conservation Objectives are those referred to in the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (as amended from time to time). 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.

Supplementary Advice to support the Conservation Objectives is not currently available.

The Citation represents a formal description of the reasons why the site has been classified as a Special Protection Area (SPA). This document formed part of the formal consultation with land owners/occupiers and stakeholders on the proposal to classify the site as a SPA.
