  • Biodiversity

    Some of the land we own lies within environmentally sensitive areas, such as Sites of Special Scientific Interest, SSSI, which are designed as the best areas in England for wildlife and/or geology.

    Orchid 356

    SSSI land in favoured condition is defined by Natural England as that which is being conserved adequately and is meeting its conservation objectives.

    Land defined as unfavourable recovering are sites not yet fully conserved but having all the necessary management measures in place.

    Two thirds of our SSSI landholdings are in favourable condition while 98.5% are in favourable or recovering condition - this exceeds the 95% national target.

    From 2015 to 2020 we will report annually on the proportion of our landholding that is being managed actively for biodiversity purposes.

    We are currently reviewing the extent of our land and integrating this information with our geographic information system and the records of sites that we have assessed for its biodiversity condition and locations where we have developed a land management plan to improve biodiversity.
