Management Plans

CMS (Conservation Management System) / Bespoke Plans:

PENNINE ecological produce conservation management plans for nature reserves and development sites.

All our plans are based at least in part on the CMS format which is a system devised by an international partnership of conservation organisations aimed at raising standards in conservation and countryside management. This is the system that Natural England use to manage SSSI sites across England.

Although the value of the CMS approach is well recognised, we have found that for some sites this method is difficult for landowners/non-ecologists to understand and follow.

We therefore favour a bespoke approach to site management which is easier to understand for land managers whilst adopting the ethos of the CMS approach.

Our management plans are clearly written and unambiguous with clear management objectives and detailed projects which we summarise in an annual calendar of tasks or projects.
