Assessing the effects of Higher Level Stewardship options on lowland heathlands and its priority species, with a particular focus on grazing effects - LM0455

To produce and use a methodology to determine the extent to which HLS has (a) delivered an improvement in lowland heathland condition; (b) been appropriately targeted. This will be achieved by using a combination of field survey, and comparison with earlier survey material, and assessments will be made over the range of relevant AE management options
