Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: No
RESOLVED: That Cabinet
a) Adopted the UNVGP SPA SPD for the West Northamptonshire Council area
b) Endorsed the UNVGP SPA SPD – Addendum to the SPA SPD: Mitigation Strategy for consultation.
The above recommendations were proposed so that, as the competent authority, West Northamptonshire Council, could protect Unit 1 of the SPA from adverse impact from recreational pressure resulting from proposed and windfall housing growth within 3km of Unit 1 the SPA.
Protection of the SPA and its qualifying features would not only meet the requirements of the Habitats Regulations but also help protect the SPA now and in the future so that protected bird species would remain present, and it could be enjoyed by residents and visitors. Adoption of the SPD
and endorsement of the consultation for the mitigation strategy would align with the council’s Green and Clean, Environment and Wellbeing priority within its Corporate Plan.
