North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy Habitat Regulations Assessment Addendum (June 2015)

A Habitat Regulations Assessment (incorporating Appropriate Assessment) was prepared in January 2015 to accompany the Joint Core Strategy public consultation. That HRA was reviewed and commented upon by Natural England prior to the public consultation and further comments were made on the HRA and on the way in which the Councils intended to respond to its recommendations in February 2015. As a result of the public consultation the Joint Planning Unit has made a number of modifications to the Joint Core Strategy.

It is therefore necessary to consider the HRA implications of these changes and to review the original recommendations made in the January 2015 HRA to consider the extent to which they have been reflected in the Joint Core Strategy and whether it is appropriate to revise any of those recommendations in the light of Natural England’s comments and further discussion with the Councils.

That is the purpose of the current document. It is intended to represent an Addendum to the January 2015 HRA rather than a complete replacement. As such, the background, methodology and impact pathway information presented in that HRA are not repeated in this report. In addition, policies that were discussed in the January 2015 HRA are not reviewed again for this report unless they have been changed.
