As mentioned in relation to CS17/new 8.183, the wording does not give us confidence that the mitigation measures identified in the HRA will be delivered. To satisfy the Habitats Regulations, we would like to see a commitment by the Council in the policy to having an overarching mitigation strategy in place, ideally prior to the adoption of the plan. If this timescale is not practical, there should be a commitment to deliver a strategy by a specified date and an approach to determine what measures are needed in the interim. The strategy will need to include details of delivery mechanisms.
