Sites of Special Scientific Interest - SSSIs (NE54)

SSSIs are everyones responsibility

Everyone needs to consider the effect their activities have on the nature conservation interests of SSSIs. It is an offence for anyone to intentionally or recklessly destroy or damage the special interest features of an SSSI, or to intentionally or recklessly disturb any animal which is notified as being of special interest. We may make bye-laws on any SSSI to control activities that may damage the site.

There are exceptions for emergency operations and operations that have planning permission, or permission from a public body.
