One policy modification was considered to have potential to result in a change which might give rise to a likely significant effect upon European sites. Modifications to policy CS7 and supporting text seek to reduce the housing allocation from 677 dwellings per year, to an interim minimum target of 489 dwellings per year. The 677 dwellings per annum assessed in the previous HRA was not expected to have an adverse effect, therefore the lower figure of 489 would also not be expected to have an adverse effect. Consequently Natural England agrees with the conclusion of the HRA Addendum that impacts of housing growth on European sites would therefore be similar to or less than that assessed for the Proposed Submission draft.

We have reviewed the HRA Addendum for the Site Allocations and Policies (Incorporating IP-One Area Action Plan) post-submission main modifications (Landscape Partnership, October 2016). The assessment identifies that no policy modification was considered to have potential to result in a change likely to have a significant effect upon European sites. Natural England agrees with this assessment and supports the conclusion that there would be no adverse effect upon any European site arising from the Local Plan document, as modified following the Examination, and no further detailed consideration is required.
