Common Standards Monitoring Guidance for Lowland Heathland 2009
The guidance given here deals with common standards monitoring (CSM) for those designated sites, including SSSIs and SACs, that specifically identify Lowland Heathland habitats as a site feature. This provides guidance on the identification of interest features, attributes, targets and methods of assessment.
This document defines a set of generic attributes to assess status of the feature, highlighting those attributes that should be used on all sites and those that are site-specific (discretionary) to be used to reflect local distinctiveness.
