Local planning authorities have a statutory duty to consider the potential impacts of a development on sites that are protected by law, for example:
on protected and priority species
habitats and statutory designated sites
Sites of Special Scientific Importance (SSSIs)
The Wildlife Assessment Check considers whether there are any protected and priority wildlife species and statutory designated sites that may be impacted by a development project. It enables you to undertake a simple check at the pre-planning application stage, before a planning application is submitted. This will help clarify whether a proposed site needs professional ecological advice and further assessment.
