Integrated land management plan for British Energy, Dungeness

ADAS botanists have carried out several previous contracts in the Dungeness/Romney marsh area, largely for British Energy/EDF in relation to land management activities on their estate. These have included a full integrated land management plan, relocation of the visitor centre and an assessment of beach landings. All these have required targeted surveys of the surrounding areas, including a suite of vascular plants, survey of shingle ridges and an assessment of the invertebrate assemblage.

The site is internationally important in terms of its flora, invertebrates and birds. ADAS has largely been responsible for the production of land management plans and habitat management and restoration advice to BE/EDF. ADAS has also carried out some of the habitat management plan activities first hand (e.g. protection of rare orchids, clearance of areas to encourage spread of wild carrot for Sussex emerald moth and fencing to prevent rabbit grazing).
