BP11 - The Habitats Regulations Appraisal

The Habitats Directive applies a precautionary principle to European Sites. LDPs can only be adopted having ascertained that there will be no adverse effect on the integrity of the site(s) in question.

There are six European Sites within the Plan Area and a further five just outside the area on which the LDP could potentially have impacts.  These sites are either Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) (for the importance of their habitats) or Special Protection Areas (SPAs) (for the importance of their bird species).

Essentially, an appraisal will be needed to assess whether the Conwy Deposit Local Development Plan (LDP) is likely to have a significant effect on a European Site and, if so, an Appropriate Assessment (AA) will need to be undertaken. The LDP cannot be adopted unless it can be ascertained, by means of the AA, that the plan will not adversely affect the integrity of the site(s).
