The operations listed below may damage the features of special interest of the SSSI. Before any of these operations are undertaken you must consult CCW.
In most cases CCW is able to consent these operations where they can be carried out in certain ways, or at specific times of year, or on certain parts of the SSSI, without damaging the features of special interest. If you wish to carry out any of these activities please contact the local office of CCW, where a Conservation Officer will be able to give you advice and where appropriate, issue a consent.
In certain circumstances it will not be possible to consent these operations, because they would damage the features of special interest. Where possible the Conservation Officer will suggest alternative ways in which you may proceed, which would enable a consent to be issued. To proceed without CCW's consent may constitute an offence. If consent is refused, or conditions are attached to it, which are not acceptable to you, you will be provided with details of how you may appeal to the Welsh Assembly Government.
CCW is empowered to enter into management agreements with owners or occupiers to safeguard or enhance the features of special interest associated with the site.
