Summary

Natural England, Joint Nature Conservation Committee and Natural Resources Wales are seeking views on proposed changes to Liverpool Bay / Bae Lerpwl Special Protection Area (SPA).

This consultation ran from
to

Consultation description

Special Protection Areas (SPAs) are special sites designated under the EU Birds Directive to protect rare, vulnerable and migratory birds.

The proposal for Liverpool Bay / Bae Lerpwl is to extend the SPA to support internationally important populations of:

  • common tern
  • little tern
  • little gull

This area is particularly important for the terns as much of the sea around their breeding colonies is the ideal habitat for plunge diving for food.

The proposal is also to add cormorant and red-breasted merganser to the waterbird assemblage as named species.

The proposal is available as a series of separate documents (attached above). You should:

  • read the consultation summary that sets out the aims of the proposal
  • read the departmental brief that provides the scientific explanation behind the proposal
  • use the maps to locate the proposal site and extension area
  • read the separate impact assessment on the Welsh portion of the site (available to read on the Natural Resources Wales website in English and Welsh languages)
