Local Wildlife Sites

Local Sites (Local Wildlife & Biological Notification Sites) in Bucks and Milton Keynes

The lack of contemporary data and condition assessments for Biological Notification Sites in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes causes problems for the planning process; it is difficult for Local Authorities to appraise a development’s impacts and comply with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) without further assessment. This project will provide the resources to complete the evaluation of the environmental quality and status of BNS in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.


Evaluation of Buckinghamshire 549 BNS to determine if their environmental status reaches a Local Wildlife Site status or if their record can be removed from the planning system.
