EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)


These Regulations, which apply to England only, amend the Conservation (Natural Habitats, &c.) Regulations 1994 ("the Habitats Regulations"), which make provision for implementing Council Directive 92/43/EEC on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora. A further category of sites is added to the meaning of "European site" in regulation 10 of the Habitats Regulations (regulation 2 of these Regulations).

This further category of sites comprises those sites in England which are included in the list of sites proposed by the Secretary of State and transmitted to the Commission under regulation 7 of the Habitats Regulations (regulation 2(2) of these Regulations).

Regulation 2(3) makes consequential amendments to regulation 11 of the Habitats Regulations to provide for registration of this new category of sites in the register of European sites compiled and maintained by the Secretary of State under that regulation.
