Jointly delivered by the partnership, this project developed
an important and exciting programme to restore much of the
heathlands and woodlands of the New Forest Candidate Special
Area of Conservation (cSAC).
The following three aims were achieved:
1) The production of a Management
Plan to cover the entire cSAC.
2) The restoration of over 4,000ha
of New Forest cSAC habitats to favourable conservation status.
3) An extension of the land owned
and managed primarily for nature conservation.
The experience, skills and knowledge gained
by the partners through the LIFE II Project will contribute
greatly to the long-term management of the New Forest. more
