Which impacts are covered by the Solent Recreation Mitigation Strategy?

The Strategy deals with the impact on the Solent Special Protection Areas (SPAs) from increased recreational activity resulting from the construction of new homes. Developments will need to deal separately with any effects on the Solent Maritime and South Wight Maritime Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) and Ramsar Sites, as well as any other significant effect on the Solent SPAs such as air quality, disruption to bird flight-paths etc.
