Advice
Riparian or estuarine habitats and species may be sensitive to impacts on tributary watercourses by activities. Land that is within 10km of a riparian or estuarine European site, and which is also within 200 metres of a contributory watercourse to that site, is considered to be of a potentially sensitive nature (due to its potential connectivity to a European site) such that mitigation and/or alternative siting may be required by authorities further considering HRA issues for specific project-level operations. The European sites potentially vulnerable in or near this block are River Derwent SAC.- Otters (Lutra lutra) travel along rivers and their tributaries, and occasionally use semi-natural habitats beyond the riparian corridor, and so could be vulnerable to activities occurring outside the designated site itself. Land that is within 10km of a site supporting otters, and which is also within 200 metres of a contributory watercourse to that site, is considered to be of a potentially sensitive nature (due to its potential to be used by otters) such that mitigation and/or alternative siting may be required by authorities further considering HRA issues for specific project-level operations. The European sites potentially vulnerable in or near this block are River Derwent SAC.- Some of European site interest features (e.g. birds species; fish; marine mammals) are potentially sensitive to noise or vibration effects associated with Stage A activities (as well as Stage B, C and D activities). Land within approximately 1km of a European site supporting noise or vibration sensitive features is considered to be of a potentially sensitive nature (due to its proximity to the European site) such that mitigation and/or alternative siting may be required by authorities further considering HRA issues for specific project-level operations. The European sites with features potentially vulnerable to this in or near this block are River Derwent SAC.
