restoration proposals

Restoration Plan

Phased restoration would follow closely behind phased extraction.

Land not immediately required for mineral extraction would stay in current use.

Restoration would be achieved by using onsite materials.

Creation of a mix of uses to enhance ecology and new woodland areas.

Key habitats comprise lowland heath and grassland, woodland and water areas.

Restoration aims are to provide long-term care for the land, improve biodiversity by 10% and improve understanding and access to habitats.
