Groundwork Trust / University of Lincoln / Lincoln City Council
Our director project managed some of the baseline surveys and production of site reports for this project whilst studying at the University of Lincoln. The project aimed to understand the ecological status of each designated and non-designated site in and around the City in order to facilitate better planning and management. The survey covered 159 sites across the City and has provided information about where different habitats and species can be found. This information was used to identify key sites in the City that ought to be protected through the planning system. Sites meeting the necessary criteria have also been designated as Local Wildlife Sites. The results were used in the development of the Core Strategy and as core evidence for other DPD’s and SPD’s as part of the SA/SEA process.
