HRA Mitigation Strategies

Under the Habitats Directive, Stroud District Council has a duty to ensure that all the activities the Council regulates have no adverse effect on the integrity of any of the Natura 2000 sites. Together Special Protection Areas (SPAs) and Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) make up the network of Natura 2000 sites. The effect of the Directive is to require the Council as local planning authority to ensure that no likely significant adverse effects arise from any proposed development scheme or Local Plan.

A new website page has been created for HRA matters and is available here.
