Improving SSSI sites

Improving-SSSI-sites-promise

A target of 50% of Sites of Special Scientific Interest's (SSSI) achieving 'favourable' status ad 95% reaching at least 'unfavourable recovering' condition is outlined in the government's biodiversity 2020 strategy. 

Our aim is to ensure that all eligible SSSI land is managed appropriately and reaches its required conservation status over time. 

We will agree actions with Natural England as we manage SSI sites on our land to enable the recovery and improvements needed.
