Advice packages are listed by marine area. Use the index maps (linked below) to find the advice package you’re interested in.
The packages include:
supplementary advice on designated features
advice on operations
Some packages are still in draft and being consulted on and may be subject to change.
Draft advice reflects the most up-to-date evidence held by Natural England and, where relevant, other statutory nature conservation bodies. It’s not formal statutory advice. Use it to help make decisions on marine activity, management and casework. .
Formal packages are Natural England’s statutory advice replacing any previous advice.
Updated advice packages are mostly held on Natural England’s Designated Sites System database. There are still some packages held on GOV.UK, whilst the database is completed. You’ll be directed by links for each site to access the information you’re after.
Only sites with updated advice packages are listed here, but all sites can be searched for on the Designated Sites View site search, which will include links to any existing advice.
