Link: Bruce Winney, Policy Officer
Update from the group:
We have had conversations with individuals involved in all five LNRS pilots (Buckinghamshire, Cornwall, Cumbria, Greater Manchester and Northumberland) to understand their contrasting experiences. This allowed us to focus on a number of areas of concern that formed a framework for examining the outputs from the pilots.
The pilots submitted their reports (a statement of biodiversity priorities and a habitat map) at the end of May 2021. We had access to all of them and prepared a more detailed briefing, which complements Defra's 'lessons learned'. We have shared this with both Natural England and Defra and it is aiding our response to the LNRS consultation, which we will be submitting soon (the deadline is 2nd November).
