Sites of Special Scientific Interest - SSSIs (NE54)

Access to SSSIs

Notification as an SSSI does not give the general public any right of access. If there is access already, we will discuss with you whether any changes are needed to protect the wildlife and geological features.

Our staff will always request your permission before visiting your SSSI. In certain circumstances we have powers to enter land to carry out our functions in relation to SSSIs. We will only use these after you have denied us access and we have given you notice, unless we believe there is damage to the SSSI.

We hope that you have found this information booklet helpful. We look forward to working with you to conserve and manage these wonderful places, and the wildlife which they support, for the benefit of present and future generations.
