Lawton Report on “Making Space for Nature”

The Government has published it’s response to the Lawton Report on “Making Space for Nature” (http://archive.defra.gov.uk/environment/biodiversity/documents/201009space-for-nature.pdf). The White Paper (http://www.defra.gov.uk/environment/natural/whitepaper/) “The Natural Choice: securing the value of nature” supports Prof Lawton’s recommendation for setting up a series of 12 Ecological Restoration Zones through establishing a series of Nature Improvement Areas (NIAs) to explore the opportunities for restoring and connecting nature on a significant scale with £7.5million of funding.
