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 seventh briefing of the series, we provide a short and simple overview of the distinction between mitigation and compensation measures for the purposes of Article 6 of the Habitats Directive. We also examine the applicability of mitigation and compensation measures to Articles 6(3) and 6(4).
