“The Government has described ancient woods as ‘a natural equivalent to our great churches and castles’ and ‘irreplaceable, living historic monuments’, so we feel it’s only right that wording to describe the treatment of ancient woodland is the same as that for Grade I listed buildings.” (http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/news/press-releases/planning-policy-must-contain-stronger-ancient-woodland-protection/)

Viz.: ‘substantial harm to or loss of designated heritage assets of the highest significance … should be holly exceptional.’
