Weston-super-Mare is adjacent to the Seven Estuary SPA, SAC, Ramsar, and SSSI and close to Mendip Limestone Grassland SAC at Uphill, Brean Down and Bleadon SSSIs. The JSP HRA identifies likely significant effects from increased recreation on these European sites. There will be a need for suitable mitigation measures and strategic solutions to be agreed as part of the WoE GI Plan. These will need to be reflected and supported in the Local Plan policies for Weston-Super-Mare where relevant.

Summary
