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 eighth briefing of the series, we examine the meaning of ‘absence of alternative solutions’ and ‘imperative reasons of overriding public interest’ for the purposes of Article 6(4) of the Habitats Directive.
