Final Environmental Statement.
Forestry Commission, as the decision making body, have determined that
an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required to assess the
implications of future management proposals for the seaward part (the
Consultation Area) of Ainsdale Sand Dunes National Nature Reserve (the
Reserve) (Figure 1). This has been carried out in accordance with the
Environmental Impact Assessment (Forestry) (England and Wales)
Regulations 1999 (the EIA Regulations), as the works may involve the
deforestation of land and the establishment of a new forest road. This
is required since the Consultation Area falls within a National Nature
Reserve (NNR), the Sefton Coast Site of Special Scientific Interest
(SSSI) and the Sefton Coast candidate Special Area of Conservation
(cSAC) (Figure 2).
