Less red tape for landowners and managers with SSSIs

Landowners and managers who enter rural programme contracts and need to work on protected natural areas of their land will no longer have to get additional Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) consents, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) has announced.


As part of the Scottish Government's new Wildlife and Natural Environment Act (WANE), land managers will no longer have to obtain consent from SNH for works carried out on a SSSI under a Rural Priorities contract, or under a protected species licence, a muirburn licence, or a species control order from SNH.
