Title: The Redgrave and Lopham Fens alleviation scheme : impact of options study : report to NRA Anglian Region
Author: B.D. Wheeler
Document Type: Monograph
The Terms of Reference of the Redgrave and Lopham Fens Alleviation Scheme Impact of Options study required that the impact on wetlands is to be considered as the estimated physical impact together with an assessment of the significance of these changes to the conservation objective of each site. Dispute has arisen about the botanical classification system that should be used as basis for the evaluation of the impact of the options with regard to the significance of their impact upon the conservation objective of neighbouring wetland sites. Because of this, independent comment was requested as to whether the Corine system of classification is likely to provide a rational, appropriate and acceptable basis for an evaluation methodology that is likely to achieve this objective. This Report provides comment on the value of the Corine system for evaluating the options of the Redgrave and Lopham Fens scheme.
