The documents referred to below relate to the Irish Sea Front SPA, and form JNCC’s advice and evidence package.

  • Draft Departmental Brief – This document is a detailed overview of the SPA, the qualifying features and rationale for site selection.
  • Draft Conservation Objectives and Advice on Operations – This document contains the draft Conservation Objectives for the qualifying bird features of the site as well as information about the sensitivity of the features to human activities and their pressures on the environment.
  • Management Options Paper – This paper considers a range of activities taking place within the SPA, and focuses on those activities which we consider present a risk to the protected features.
  • Screening document – This document contains a brief assessment of human activities which take place at or close by the SPA, and which could have a negative impact on the feature of interest, the supporting habitats and their structure, functioning and supporting processes.

Some of these documents were produced during the selection and designation process and therefore may be out of date. The Irish Sea Front SPA Site Information Centre is the most up-to-date source of information for this site and will reflect any additional information gathered.

Please note, these documents were produced prior to the launch of JNCC's new website. Whilst every effort has been made to redirect material to the relevant content on the new website, some of the links within these documents may no longer work.
