Abstract

Among the different provisions of the Habitats Directive, Article 6 has been given rise to a steady flow of cases. It requires Member States to protect designated habitats, and provides for specific procedural requirements whenever projects or plans are likely to threaten those protected habitats. In order to preserve classified habitats from development or other activities likely to alter their ecological integrity, Article 6(3) of the Habitats directive provides for a sui generis prospective impact study of the environmental effects applicable to ‘any plan or project not directly connected with or necessary to the management of the site but likely to have a significant effect thereon, either individually or in combination with other plans or projects’.

Keywords: Habitats Directive, Article 6, Impact assessment, Nature protection
