Nat Env 3 Habitat Protection
|In assessing planning applications for new development, the Department will pay particular regard to the need to safeguard the natural and semi-natural habitats in Fermanagh.
Fermanagh is renowned for its wildlife and has an exceptional range of natural and semi-natural habitats. Of particular note are the freshwater lakes and wetlands, the blanket and lowland raised bogs, the species rich grasslands and areas of broad-leaved woodland. The Department will, as far as is practicable, pay due regard to nature conservation issues when considering proposals which might adversely affect habitats, species or features worthy of conservation.
