Nature Conservation and Development Control: International Sites: European Sites: Simplified Planning Zones and Enterprise Zones
51. The Habitats Regulations provide that existing Enterprise Zone (EZ) schemes, and existing Development Orders, will cease to have effect to grant permission for development which is likely to have a significant effect on a European site. The Regulations also prevent new Simplified Planning Zone (SPZ) and EZ schemes, and new Development Orders from granting planning permission for development which is likely to have a significant effect on a European site.
