Natural England and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) today set out a proposal for a new approach to Conservation Objectives for European protected sites making them clearer and more understandable.
This initiative is a response to the recent Report of the Habitats and Wild Birds Directive Implementation Review (HWBDIR).
As part of this new approach we are proposing that clear baselines and targets are added to our recently published revised Conservation Objectives for all terrestrial Special Protection Areas (SPAs), Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) and European marine site conservation objectives.
The Conservation Objectives are now available on our website.
