Conservation (Natural Habitats etc.) (Amendment) (England) Regulations

Applies to England

Title: Conservation (Natural Habitats etc.) (Amendment) (England) Regulations

Category: England Regulation

Date: 2000

Reference: SI 2000/192 [Full text]

General Description:

These regulations amend the original Statutory Instrument introduced in Conservation (Natural Habitats, etc.) Regulations 1994. ("the Habitats Regulations"), which make provision for implementing Council Directive 92/43/EEC on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora.

The purpose of the amendment is mainly to close a loophole concerning candidate Special Interest Areas. These are now afforded the same protection as they would have under the 1994 regulations as Sites of Community importance. This has been achieved by adding a further category of sites to the meaning of "European site" in regulation 10 of the Habitats Regulations (regulation 2 of these Regulations).
