Sites of special scientific interest (SSSI) are nationally protected sites that have features such as wildlife or geology. 

Impact on planning decisions

You are not  normally allowed to carry out works that could have an adverse effect on a SSSI. There are certain things you cannot do on SSSI land without consulting Natural England and getting consent from them first.

Responsible organisations and guidance

SSSIs are created by Natural England and there is specific guidance on managing them.
