POLICY QL19 - Protection of Wider Biodiversity

  1. Development proposals will be required to retain natural habitat and features of ecological and nature conservation value in situ where possible. Proposals which would have an adverse impact on the integrity of habitats, species and features will only be permitted where:
    1. the reasons for the proposal outweigh the impact on the intrinsic nature conservation value of the habitat, species or feature;
    2. the Council is satisfied that there are no reasonable alternative sites or solutions to accommodate the development proposed; and
    3. compensatory habitat provision or management and suitable arrangements for maintenance is provided in appropriate circumstances.
  2. Where potential exists for wildlife corridors the importance of such links will be taken intoaccount by the District Council when considering development proposals. Development will only be permitted where such links are maintained or suitable alternatives provided.

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.
