The scope of the Appropriate Assessment should be agreed with NRW at an early stage. The Habitats Regulations do not provide any further detail regarding the scope of assessment, simply defining it as an ‘appropriate assessment.’ The assessment must therefore be appropriate to the case and its circumstances. This means it must be appropriate for the achievement of its aim, which is to enable it to be determined whether the project will adversely affect a site and whether mitigation measures can be implemented that will reduce the effect to a level that prevents an adverse effect on site integrity. The size, content and structure of an AA will vary between projects and be provided by NRW.
