(a)proposed pre-construction surveys including methodologies and timings; and

(b)a proposed format and content for a pre-construction baseline report.

(2) The survey proposals must specify the objectives of each survey and explain how the survey will assist in either informing a useful and valid comparison with the post-construction position and/or will enable the validation or otherwise of key predictions in the environmental statement.

(3) The baseline report proposals must ensure that the outcome of the agreed surveys together with existing data and reports are drawn together to present a valid statement of the pre-construction position, with any limitations, and must make clear what post-construction comparison is intended and the justification for this being required.

(4) The pre-construction surveys referred to in paragraph (1) must, unless otherwise agreed with the MMO, have due regard to, but not be limited to, the need to undertake—

(a)appropriate surveys to determine the location, extent and composition of any Annex 1 habitat biogenic reef features (Mytilus edulis and/or Sabellaria spinulosa) within the Inner Dowsing, Race Bank and North Ridge Site of Community Importance or biogenic reef features in whole or in part inside the areas within the offshore Order limits in which it is proposed to carry out construction works;

(c)1 high-resolution bathymetric and side-scan sonar survey of the areas within the offshore Order limits in which it is proposed to carry out construction works including a 500-metre buffer area around the site of each works.
