Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation in Bexley
Places in Bexley which are valuable for wildlife have been identified as Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINCs).
These sites have been identified following Government guidance on local wildlife sites, published by the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (follow the link to the right). More detailed guidance on procedures for the identification of SINCs in London has been published by the Mayor of London. The latest version of this regional guidance can be found by following the link on the right.
SINCs are graded according to their importance. The top tier, Sites of Metropolitan Importance, are of value on a London-wide scale. Below these are Sites of Borough Importance (sub-divided into Grades 1 and 2) and Sites of Local Importance.
These sites receive protection from harmful development through policies in the London Plan and Bexley's UDP and Local Development Framework. A list of SINCs in Bexley, along with maps and site descriptions, can be found in the four PDF files on the right.
