These Regulations designate an inland area as a Special Protection Area in accordance with Article 4 of the Habitats Directive for protection purposes set out in Schedule 3 (protection of semi-natural dry grasslands and scrubland facies on calcareous substrates). The Minister shall, in accordance with the Regulations of 2011, establish and publish such particular conservation objectives as he or she, from time to time, considers necessary for the Special Area of Conservation with regard to the natural habitat type and animal and plant species specified in Schedule 3. Schedule 4 lists activities that require the consent of the Minister because of their potential to cause disturbance or damage to the natural habitat types and animal and plant species specified in Schedule 3. They include: introduction, or re-introduction, of plants or animals not found in the area (consent is not required for the planting of crops on established reseeded grassland or cultivated land); planting of trees or multi-annual bioenergy crops; application of pesticides, including herbicides; application of fertilizer near water; increase in stock density; certain changes in agricultural practice; water abstraction, sinking of boreholes and wells. Operations or activities other than those listed at Schedule 4 to these Regulations, such as effluent discharge, construction work, aquaculture, fishing or forestry, require a licence or permission from the appropriate consent authority.
