Advice
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 Flamborough Head and Bempton Cliffs SPA.- Coastal or marine habitat features could be vulnerable to any changes in coastal processes that occur due to activities occurring along the coastline. Land located along the coastline (i.e. within 1km of the mean low water level), and which is also within 10km of a European site with coastal habitats, is therefore 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 forspecific project-level operations. The European sites potentially vulnerable in or near this block are Flamborough Head 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 Flamborough Head and Bempton Cliffs SPA.
