Review of the Habitats Regulations was proposed in the Nature Recovery Green Paper. That consultation closed on 11 May and we are now in the process of analysing responses. The Government will publish a formal response in due course.

As set out in the Nature Recovery Green Paper, any review of legislation relating to protected sites will be consistent with the UK’s international commitments.
