ClientEarth’s briefing series ‘European protected areas – navigating the legal landscape’ provides a broad overview of the legal landscape surrounding Article 6 of the Habitats Directive. It is designed to provide the key legal information needed to engage in discussions relating to developments, or plans for developments, in or around Natura 2000 sites.
In this third briefing of the series, we provide a simple overview of the meaning of the term ‘site integrity’, used in Article 6(3) of the Habitats Directive. We consider what it means to ‘adversely affect the integrity of the site’, and the circumstances in which a plan or project can be granted permission to proceed. We also consider the legal meaning of ‘favourable conservation status’.
