Green Infrastructure Strategy studies have highlighted the importance of full information being available for sites in order to inform the types of use that they can support without detriment to biodiversity (Table 2). For this reason it is suggested that further surveys are undertaken for all Priority Areas (to remedy the “lack of information” threat) and that the threat of “disturbance” is also added to all Priority Areas. Details of suggested further surveys are collated and summarised in Section 4 of this Annex.
Priority Area Urban Hogmoor Inclosure The Slab Bordon Inclosure Hollywater Oxney Farm and Meadows Northern Periphery Lindford Wey Valley Standford Grange Farm Southern Periphery
Four new Priority Areas have been allocated to cover land that is outside the Parish of Whitehill Bordon but within the boundaries of the Eco-town and that does not currently have any local policies for nature conservation (Figure 1). These are: Northern Periphery; Lindford Wey Valley; Standford Grange Farm; and Southern Periphery.
