Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 - Creation of steps and improvement of surfacing to a very heavily used right of way. Installation of new access furniture at Thors Cave, Wetton (NP/SM/1121/1255, ALN)
Item 5 was dealt with at the same time as Item 6 but the votes were taken separately. Please see full minute in detail in minute 35/22 below.
The Head of Planning informed Members of an amendment to the report at paragraph 24 which should have read “Species Regulations 2017” not “Species Regulations 2019”
A motion to approve the recommendation, was moved and seconded, and a vote was taken and carried.
I. That this report be adopted as the Authority’s assessment of likely significant effects on internationally important protected habitats and species under Regulation 63 of the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (as amended) in relation to the current planning application at Thor’s Cave.
II. It is determined that the development is necessary for the conservation management of the Special Area of Conservation and would not result in significant impacts to the SAC, so an appropriate assessment is not required. Therefore, the development is not contrary to the provisions of the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (as amended).
