Nature Networks Evidence Handbook published by Natural England

1st April 2020

Natural England recently published the Nature Networks Evidence Handbook and an accompanying Summary for Practitioners.

They aim to provide the evidence that will help to underpin the design of nature networks  One of the key aspects that the handbook tries to unravel, is what the Lawtonian terms of “Bigger, better, more and joined” really mean – how much bigger, how do we make sites better, how many more do we need and where, and how should we improve connectivity. Natural England have made this accessible to users  in the Summary for Practitioners by creating, amongst other things, a series of Rules of Thumb that is summarised on a single page, as a ready source of information.
