Appropriate Assessment of the Regional Spatial Strategy for the North East

TEC were part of a consortium, led by Environ, commissioned to deliver this work for the Government Office North East. TEC are focussed on the delivery of the AA as required by the Habitats Regulations 1994 (as amended).

A screening exercise confirmed that the Submission Draft RSS for the North East of England did seem likely to affect some of the European Sites in the Region, so an AA was carried out to look at the significance of the effects and to identify ways to avoid any damage.
