Habitats Regulations Appraisal of Plans and Projects (Scotland)

This course has been designed specifically for anyone working in Scotland, but will also have relevance to those working in other parts of the UK. It is suitable for those charged with conducting HRA or providing information to enable a HRA to be carried out. 

The training will follow the approach set out in SNH’s guidance on HRA. The day is led by Sue Bell with input from Crispin Hill (SNH). 

Sessions cover the application of HRA to both projects and plans (e.g. Local Development Plans) including the legislative basis for HRA, and the stages in the assessment process. Participants will be introduced to key terms and concepts and receive guidance on the different stages in the process, including how to decide whether an HRA is required, how to identify European sites that might be affected, and how to identify those aspects of a project or plan that require appropriate assessment. Professional tips and hints on compliance and best practice are provided throughout. 

The course will be taught via group discussions, exercises and presentations and will draw on published guidance and case law.
