Biodiversity opportunity mapping report (March 2014)
This report was commissioned by Natural England as part of a wider programme of landscape scale conservation efforts within Staffordshire. The purpose of the report is to show where priority habitats could be enhanced, restored or created in the borough as a basis from which to develop relevant policies and targets. The outcome of the report is the identification of eight biodiversity opportunity zones across the borough which reflect the ecological habitat characteristics and opportunities for each area.
