Developing the Evidence Base for Impact Assessments for Recommended dSACs and dSPAs 2015
The purpose of this study was to develop an evidence base of the potential environmental, economic and social benefits and costs of eight recommended draft Special Areas of Conservation (dSACs) and three draft Special Protected Areas (dSPA) in UK offshore and territorial waters.

The report includes seven appendices (A–G). Appendices A, E & F accompany the report. The following appendices are provided as separate documents:
- Appendix B: Context for Marine Activities and Proposed Assessment Methods for dSACs.
- Appendix C: Context for Marine Activities and Proposed Assessment Methods for dSPAs.
- Appendix D: Scenarios for Recommended dSAC and dSPA Proposals.
