What are Special Areas of Conservation (SAC)?
SACs are areas which have been given special protection under the European Union’s Habitats Directive. They provide increased protection to a variety of wild animals, plants and habitats and are a vital part of global efforts to conserve the world’s biodiversity.

Hastings & St Leonards has one SAC.. The majority of Hastings Country Park forms the Hastings Cliffs SAC. Only the cliff-face along Rock-a-nore Road is outside of the SAC boundary.
