Bird Aware Solent – Approval of the Definitive Mitigation Strategy

This report will recommend to Council that the definitive Bird Aware Mitigation Strategy is approved as a material consideration for planning applications.
The Council has already approved the Interim Mitigation Strategy, which deals with the impact of recreational disturbance from new housing on the Solent Maritime Special Area of Conservation. The Bird Aware partnership has, following public consultation, replaced this with a definitive mitigation strategy which now requires approval for use by the individual planning authorities of the partnership.
