Will Natural England’s water neutrality advice stymie development?

When a team from Natural England carried out a survey of the Arun Valley Special Area of Conservation (SAC) in October of last year, they made an alarming discovery. The range of the species for which the site had been designated, the vanishingly rare little whirlpool ram’s horn snail Anisus vorticulus, had been reduced to a small population in a single ditch where it had been previously “moderately widespread”.
