I'm only proposing one new dwelling; how can it have any impact on the birds?

A lot of single dwellings and developments of only a few homes are built each year around the Solent. Cumulatively, they will have a significant impact, so it is only right that each dwelling makes a contribution to mitigate the impact. The legislation requires that the impact of individual developments must be assessed in combination with other development proposed around the SPA. The need for a developer contribution from an individual dwelling was underlined when a planning inspector gave the absence of a financial contribution as one reason for dismissing an appeal for a single bungalow in Southampton.
