Prevent productive grassland and clean pasture from being designated an SSSI

Petition Details

Prevent all productive grassland and clean pasture from being designated under the SSSI scheme. We believe this will better allow businesses to carry on farming. Current farming practices have been carried out for hundreds years and several generations, making the landscape what it is today.

Additional Information

The planning restrictions on SSSIs for any development which is considered to have an adverse effect on it, including for developments outside an SSSI, and new rules affecting farmers’ use and storage of slurry, restrict basic farming activities. This also affects the value of land in and around an SSSI.
