Natura 2000 logoOffshore SAC Consultation


Five possible Special Areas of Conservation (pSAC) for harbour porpoise have been identified and have undergone public consultation between 19th January and 3rd May 2016.  The consultation is now closed, and JNCC and the SNCBs are preparing a report which will be published in due course. To find out more about the proposed sites, please see the Harbour Porpoise pSAC consultation pages.

The boundaries for the pSACs are currently in draft and not yet available through this webpage. Please contact a member of our Marine Species Advice Team at
