Opinion for Natural England on the Thames Basin Heath SPA

DATE: 19 Mar 2007

Instructed by Natural England to write an advice for public use during the EIP of the South East Plan.

Advice concerned the application of Article 6 of the Habitats Directive to housing projects potentially affecting the SPA. Sensitive issue because the projected housing numbers under the SE Plan require building in proximity to the SPA. Opinion considered during the EIP and has been widely considered since.
