The SSSI are sites that are preserved due to its rich flora, fauna, geology and geomorphology. These areas have developed their rich heritage through centuries. Hence they are taken utmost care of. The rules of construction are quite stringent here.
Sites of Special Scientific Interest give legal protection to the best sites for wildlife and geology in England and Wales. They are the areas of land that Natural England Resources Wales designate as being of special interest because of their flora, geological or physiographical features, such as wetlands, rivers, meadows, beaches and peat bogs.
The consideration must be made are as follows :-
– Proper planning should be done.
– The approval should be needed.
– Land should be surveyed and all the test should be performed.
