As a result of recent European Court of Justice cases, it will not necessarily be appropriate to consider the

mitigation (contribution to SAMMs) at the Habitats Regulations stage. It is also worthy of note that the

Council will also need to consider whether the amount and location of development is likely to have

implications for cumulative air quality assessments and projections at Ashdown Forest. The council should

seek advice, but it is likely that most development will need to be directed away from the southern parts of

the district.
