Joint SNCB Interim Displacement Advice Note 2022

Marine Pressures Advice Seabirds

Abstract

The Joint SNCB Interim Displacement Advice Note provides advice on how to present assessment information on the extent and potential consequences of seabird displacement from Offshore Wind Farm (OWF) developments.

This note replaces the previous note produced by Natural England and JNCC in 2012. It updates the previous note to take account of potential areas of disparity in approaches that have arisen in casework since the original note was issued. It also follows on from a Displacement Workshop (6–7 May 2015), run by JNCC and the Marine Renewables Ornithology Group (MROG), and funded by The Crown Estate, which sought to make progress towards developing a more refined best-practice approach to assessing displacement impacts.

The note has subsequently been updated in 2022 to take account of new advice of red-throated diver displacement detailed within the Interim Advice On The Treatment Of Displacement For Red-Throated Diver. The Interim Advice On The Treatment Of Displacement For Red-Throated Diver is available as a separate annex to the Interim Displacement Advice Note, to specifically address recent evidence of red-throated diver displacement.
