‘UK Approach’ to updating the UK’s Natura 2000 Standard Data Forms 2015

Corporate JNCC Publications Protected Areas Birds Directive Habitats Directive Natura 2000

Abstract

Each Natura 2000 site in the United Kingdom has its own Standard Data Form containing site-specific information. The data forms are generated from the Natura 2000 Database submitted to the European Commission

As part of the December 2015 submission (tranche 50), several sections of the UK’s previously published Standard Data Forms have been updated. Details of the approach taken by the UK in this submission are available in the 'UK Approach' document.

The information provided in these data forms follows the officially agreed site information format for Natura 2000 sites, as set out in the Official Journal of the European Union recording the Commission Implementing Decision of 11 July 2011 (2011/484/EU). Further technical documentation can be found at: http://cdr.eionet.europa.eu/help/natura2000.

Accompanying the 'UK Approach' Document is a change log that was provided with the tranche 50 update. This log outlines the changes between the 49th update and the 50th update, many of which were as a result of the change in the UK's approach.
