Natural England is reasonably satisfied that the SA considers the impacts of the Core Strategy and Policies [sic] on relevant aspects of the environment within our remit, including biodiversity and geology, landscape, green infrastructure and soils. We particularly welcome SA objectives to protect and enhance designated sites, including SSSIs, SACs, SPAs and Ramsar sites, in addition to locally designated and non-designated areas of biodiversity. However, we would advise that the SA should cross-reference with the findings and recommendations of the AA which identifies potential recreational disturbance effects on European sites, and measures to mitigate these.
