Landscape Advice Note: The Habitats Directive

Front cover for Landscape Advice Note: The Habitats Directive

By Alan Cathersides

The Habitats Directive enabled the creation of a network of protected areas across the European Union known as ‘Natura 2000’. The aim of the Natura 2000 network of protected sites is to maintain or restore the extent and quality of rare habitat types and to ensure that rare species can survive and maintain their populations and natural range on a long term basis.

This Landscape Advice Note is designed as a basic introduction to the Habitats Directive and the way it might affect historic sites.
