Abstract

The Lawton report, commonly summarised as "more, bigger, better and joined", and the Natural Environment White Paper The Natural Choice have emphasized the importance of landscape-scale planning and management, and spawned pilot Nature Improvement Areas. The policy framework is clearly steering us firmly down the land-sharing, rather than land-sparing route, away from managing for wildlife in discrete protecteed areas, but as a component of the working countryside. Focusing on the delivery of environmental benefits from economically viable land management has been an increasingly important part of Common Agricuultural Policy support, particularly the Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) scheme, as well as the woodland grant schemes.
