Summary

Natural England is seeking views on the proposal to extend the Special Protection Area (SPA) marine site.

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 Poole Harbour is to:

  • extend the boundary of the existing SPA to incorporate the subtidal areas of the harbour and also areas of Lytchett Bay now subject to tidal inundation
  • add the new features:
    • little egret
    • Eurasian spoonbill
    • Sandwich tern

This extended area is particularly important to these birds for feeding and resting and also contains important supporting habitats.

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
