Conditions
Stage B, C and D activities will be prohibited at or near to the surface within the boundaries of all European sites in this block. Stage A activities at or near to the surface will be prohibited in certain sites with potentially sensitive features. Stage A activities, at or near tothe surface, are therefore also prohibited in any overlapping areas of two or more European sites, where such activities are prohibited in at least one of those sites . The sites in which Stage A activities are prohibited are: Peak District Moors(South Pennine Moors Phase 1) SPA.

Advice
This block has European sites within it, or within 1km of the block boundary. In general, land within approximately 1km of a European site 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. .- In some instances, bird species that are associated with SPAs and some Ramsar sites may rely on non-designated habitats beyond the European site boundaries, and so could be vulnerable to activities occurring outside the designated site itself. Land within 10kmof an SPA, or a Ramsar site designated for its bird populations, is therefore 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 potentially vulnerable in or near this block are Peak District Moors (South Pennine Moors Phase 1) SPA.- 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 Peak District Moors (South Pennine Moors Phase 1) SPA.
