The Habitats Directive: selection of Special Areas of Conservation in the UK

SACs in the UK


 

These pages provide an explanation of the SAC selection process in the UK, with descriptions of interest features and individual site accounts, together with supplementary information. They replace JNCC Report, No. 270, 'The Habitats Directive: selection of Special Areas of Conservation in the UK', which was published in 1997.

 

They are updated whenever the UK submits new data about candidate SACs to the EC, or after there is a change to the designated status of sites. Last updated 1st June 2018 following a change of status from candidate Special Area of Conservation (cSAC) to Site of Community Importance (SCI) for six sites on 12th December 2017. These changes will be submitted to the European Commission in the next UK Natura 2000 Tranche – UK Tranche 57. review changes.
