Loggerheads neighbourhood plan

Habitats regulations assessment (HRA) screening

In light of recent changes regarding the interpretation of legislation following a Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruling on the People Over Wind and Peter Sweetman v. Coillte Teoranta (C-323/17[1]), we as the ‘competent authority’ under the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 took the decision to re-screen the Loggerheads neighbourhood plan to assess whether it would result in any likely significant effects on European sites within relative proximity of the neighbourhood plan area.

The revised report was available for comment between 12 and 26 October 2018, and no responses were received. The examiner recommended a modification to correct an error in relation to paragraph numbers which has been corrected.
