  • Reference                          Affor 17/18-02
  • Project type                       Afforestation
  • Location                             Moyad Upper, Attical

  • Area                                     4.52ha
  • Project description           Planting of oakwood
  • Opinion                               Relevant. There are likely significant environmental effects because: the establishment of a seed source may have the potential for colonisation of habitats within the Eastern Mournes SAC/ ASSI; the entire area is priority habitat Lowland heathland; and woodland creation would be out of keeping with the landscape character of this part of the Mourne AONB. This project will require an environmental statement.
