Notification of the publication of updated conservation advice for North Norfolk Sandbanks and Saturn Reef 

20 December 2017

JNCC have been working on improving the conservation advice we provide for offshore Marine Protected Areas. The new approach is based on recommended best practise and feedback from current users. Further information on the approach is available on the JNCC Conservation Advice webpage.

Updated formal conservation advice has now been published for North Norfolk Sandbanks and Saturn Reef SAC via the conservation advice tab of the Site Information Centre.  The updated advice comprises:

  • background information which explains why and to whom we are providing this advice;
  • conservation objectives for the site;
  • JNCC’s view of the site’s condition, the conservation benefits it can provide and the conservation measures which, in our view, are required to ensure the site achieves its conservation objectives;
  • Supplementary Advice on the Conservation Objectives (SACO); and
  • advice on operations capable of affecting site integrity and therefore achievement of the site’s conservation objectives and the guidance on how to use it.

These elements together form JNCC’s conservation advice for this site and should be read in conjunction with each other.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss the advice, please do get in touch using the email address OffshoreMPAs@jncc.gov.uk and include ‘North Norfolk Sandbanks and Saturn Reef Conservation Advice’ in the subject header.
