Status of English Local Wildlife Site Systems (2011)

(England)

In 2011, the Wildlife Trusts reported on their review of the local wildlife sites. They found that:

The adoption of standard selection criteria, the reduction in the number of names given to Local Wildlife Sites and the adoption of de-selection procedures are all to be welcomed. There does, however, seem to be a slow attrition of Local Wildlife Sites through development and a more widespread decline in their quality through lack of management, which may be compounded by changes of government policy and the mechanisms by which local authorities are funded.
