Progress on SSSIs under habitats directive


Good progress is being made on Defra’s public service agreement target for 95% of Sites of Special Scientific Interest to be in good or recovering condition by 2010.

Latest indications show that 72.6% of land falls into these two categories, above the target of 71% for this stage.
Water companies are making an important contribution to this effort. Management plans and resources are in place for most designated sites and issues for the remainder are being identified and addressed in conjunction with English Nature.
This is good news, but to achieve and maintain standards for all SSSI sites will require a concerted ongoing effort.
