The following Planning practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
EU Council Directive 2009/147/EC on the conservation of wild birds (OJ L 20, 26.1.2010) (the EU Birds Directive) (as it continues to have effect in the EU) is one of two EU directives relating to wildlife and nature conservation, the other being EU Council Directive 92/43/EEC (OJ L 206, 22.7.1992) on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora, commonly referred to as the EU Habitats Directive, see Practice Note: Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC—snapshot. Together, the two directives establish a network of breeding and resting sites known as Natura 2000, and put in place the other protections for rare and threatened species and habitats.
The EU Birds Directive was adopted to enable the EU to meet its obligations for bird species under the Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats (also known as the Bern Convention) and the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (also known as the Bonn Convention). It provides a framework for the conservation and management of wild birds and human interactions with wild birds in Europe. It sets broad objectives for a wide range of activities, although the precise legal mechanisms for their achievement are at the discretion of each EU Member State.
The EU Birds Directive was transposed in England by the Wildlife and Countryside Act
