Circular 06/05: Biodiversity and Geological Conservation -
Statutory Obligations and Their Impact Within the Planning
- Published: 16 August 2005
- Site: Planning, building and the environment
This circular provides administrative guidance on the
application of the law relating to planning and nature
conservation as it applies in England. It complements the
expression of national planning policy in Planning Policy
Statement 9: Biodiversity and Geological Conservation
(PPS9) and the accompanying Planning for Biodiversity
and Geological Conservation: A Guide to Good Practice.
Although this circular outlines how statutory obligations
impact within the planning system, in some cases the
legislation will have an equal bearing on other regimes eg
Transport and Works Act 1992.
This circular should be read in conjunction with
PPS9, which sets out the Government's planning policies
for England on protection of biodiversity and geological
conservation through the planning system and the
accompanying good practice guide.
