GN35-21 NUTRIENT NEUTRALITY - IMPACT ON DEVELOPMENT

Reducing the leaching of nitrates and phosphates into protected rivers, wetlands and coastal habitats in England and Wales has become an important topic and especially so since a European Court of Justice decision in 2018 which determined that new development should not have a significant effect on any designated nature conservation site. The purpose of this guidance note is to provide the legal context, an explanation of the problem, the location of known affected catchments, what it means for new development, and signposting to relevant planning authority and/or national guidance.
