Background evidence Thames Basin Heaths

Reports that provide evidence for the Rushmoor Plan.

The local authorities affected by the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA) have prepared a delivery framework to establish a consistent approach for the protection of the SPA.

Rushmoor Borough Council has also developed an Avoidance and Mitigation Strategy setting out the approach that we will follow to avoid harm to the heathlands arising from additional residential development. You can view these documents on the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area page.
