During hydraulic works it is not uncommon that interchanging of habitat types occurs through partial area loss of the habitat type at the location of the activity and development of new habitat or enhancing the quality of the same of another habitat type elsewhere. According to the current interpretation of the NCAct legislation, replacement of area or quality of one (protected) habitat type by another does not compensate for the surface area lost, although it is conceivable that this replacement does not result in a reduction of the overall value of nature of the area or site and may even lead to an improved overall value
