Site Integrity Briefing Series - Sandbanks

ClientEarth, Marine Conservation Society and Seas at Risk have produced a series of briefings designed to help navigate the requirements of the Habitats Directive. These briefings have been designed to help campaigners, environmental organisations and the public to make sure the legal requirements are being followed and the correct protections are in place.

These briefings provide guidance on the meaning of ‘site integrity’, as well as examples of how legal arguments relating to ‘site integrity’ could be deployed for four specific habitats protected by the Directive, to ensure maximum protection and recovery. This is the first in the series and examines site integrity and reefs.
