POLICY QL18 - Protected Species

  1. Development proposals which would have an adverse impact on any species protected by national legislation will not be permitted unless:
    1. there are over-riding reasons for the development which are in the public interest and, which outweigh the protected status of the species;
    2. the District Council is satisfied that there are no reasonable alternative sites or solutions to accommodate the development proposed; and
    3. where appropriate, measures have been taken to reduce disturbance to the species to a minimum, and included to facilitate the survival of individual members of the species.
  2. Development proposals which would have an adverse effect on any species protected by European legislation will only be permitted where, in addition to a), b) and c) above, it can be demonstrated that the impact of the proposal is not detrimental to the maintenance of the species’ population at a favourable conservation status in its natural range.

The Proposal Map (including the inset maps) represented in the electronic version of the Local Plan is not to scale and should not be interpreted other than at the published scale nor be used for the purposes of measurement. The colours and symbols used may not be an exact interpretation of the published printed version of the Local Plan. In general the printed Local Plan maps take precedence. With respect to Conservation Areas however the printed version may include an inaccurate boundary, as since the adoption of the Local Plan, some Conservation Areas have been reviewed and amended. In theses cases the electronic version should be the correct one. To confirm, please check with the Conservation Officer.
