Who uses the Habitats Regulations Assessment Handbook?

If you are considering a subscription to the Habitats Regulations Assessment Handbook & Journal, we feel that our current subscriber list provides one of the most reassuring reasons for you to do so. Due to their statutory role in the interpretation and application of the Habitats Regulations, Natural England, Natural Resources Wales, the Environment Agency, the Joint Nature Conservation Committee and the Marine Management Organisation each had an extended ‘guest access’ to content prior to taking a decision over their subscriptions. The fact that they each individually decided to progress multiple user subscriptions for their staff is, we believe, the best ‘advert’ for the quality and potential value of the content....
