The independent review of upland evidence is being carried out in two parts and was launched last month with a request for contributions around three initial topic areas. The first phase will draw to a close on 20 July and the independent experts will begin to carefully consider the evidence in relation to each of the questions set out in the scoping document: (341kb).
Natural England is now inviting submissions of evidence for the second phase of the study which will cover:
- Determining environmentally sustainable stocking regimes on moorland
- Assessing the feasibility of restoring degraded blanket bog
