Torbay Council, in partnership with Dartmoor National Park, Devon County Council, South Hams District Council and Teignbridge District Council, have prepared ‘South Hams Special Area of Conservation Greater Horseshoe Bats – Habitats Regulations Assessment Guidance’. The Guidance has been approved by Torbay Council subject to recommended amendments and should be used as interim guidance until it has been formally agreed by all local authorities by September 2019.

This document is no longer a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

The final consultation zones and mitigation features will be added to the Devon County Council Environment Viewer in due course.

A summary of the consultation responses and the outcomes and recommended amendments are available below:
