Nature Conservation Orders (NCOs)

What is it: 

Nature conservation orders are a means to protect the natural features of sites of special scientific interest (SSSI) and Natura sites (special protection areas and special area of conservation) from damage. They may be used when other routine means to protect SSSI and Natura sites are inadequate.
