National Inventory of Wildlife-Rich Brownfield Habitat Has Been Launched

The first ever national inventory of wildlife-rich brownfield habitat has been launched on a new interactive website in partnership with Natural England, Buglife, the Invertebrate Conservation Trust and Defra. The inventory distinguishes priority Open Mosaic Habitat (OMH) on Previously Developed Land from other brownfields, providing an essential tool for local authorities, strategic planners, ecologists, local wildlife groups or indeed anyone with an interest in local planning or urban nature conservation. It is designed to work alongside Buglife’s brownfield hub, a one stop shop which offers detailed information on the management of priority OMH.
