Environment (Wales) Act Section 7 Terrestrial Habitats of Principle Importance

Natural Resources Wales

Under the Environment (Wales) Act (2016), Section 7 requires biodiversity lists to be produced. These lists include types of habitats which are of "Principle Importance" for the purpose of maintain and enhancing biodiversity in relation to Wales. This list supersedes the duty in Section 42 of the NERC Act 2006. This dataset details the extent and location of those terrestrial habitats classed of "Principle Importance" in Wales.

This dataset was created using Priority Habitats of Wales Local Biodiversity Action Plan (LBAP) and Broad Habitats both of which are derived from Phase 1 Terrestrial habitat and species surveys conducted across Wales. In 2019 the interim list of habitats of principle importance was exactly the same as the previous list under Section 42 of the NERC Act.
