Habitats And Wild Birds Directives

EDM number 2776 in 2010-12, proposed by Valerie Vaz on 27/02/2012.

That this House notes that the review of the implementation of the European habitats and wild birds directives in England is due to report shortly as part of the 2012Budget; recognises that the directives provide important protection of natural environments, ecosystem services and other resources; acknowledges that the directives not only enable protection and enjoyment of these environments but also underpin a sustainable economy; rejects the contention that the implementation of the habitats and wild birds directive is gold-plated or a burden on business; is concerned that the Government's review of nature directive implementation could have unnecessary, large-scale and adverse impacts on the natural environment; encourages early engagement between developers, statutory agencies and voluntary conservation bodies to ensure any developments that take place are sustainable; and calls on the Government to promote awareness of these directives and avoid weakening protections for natural environments.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
