PR1: Open Space Provision and the Environment

Representation ID: 1323

Received: 17/10/2011

Respondent: Natural England

Representation Summary:

Natural England welcomes this policy.

Full text:

Natural England welcomes this policy. We would, however, recommend that under point 2 the reference to the Ramsar site should be amended to also refer to the SPA, as this is the more relevant designation in terms of the strict legal applicability of the EU Habitats Directive. In relation to point 3.b, whilst we recognise the legitimate safety concerns of users, we would recommend that any such lighting should be so designed as to minimise its impacts upon wildlife (eg by use of 'orange' low-pressure sodium lighting, rather than 'pink' high-pressure sodium or 'white' lighting).

Respondent: Natural England

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

Natural England is strongly supportive of this policy. However, in point 1, the words "appropriate assessment" should be replaced by "Habitats Regulations Assessment" in order to more accurately reflect the requirements of The Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 (HRA is a two-stage process in which 'appropriate assessment' is the second stage and is only required if the first stage indicates that the proposed development is likely to have a significant effect).
