Annual biodiversity monitoring reports

Local Planning Authorities are expected to monitor changes in biodiversity in their Local Plan area as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework. HBIC tracks changes in area of designated sites and habitats through the information it holds. HBIC also provides information on species change across Hampshire with the help of its partner species groups. This information is summarised in an annual biodiversity monitoring report. Copies of these reports are available from 2005-06.

State of biodiversity

The State of Hampshire's Biodiversity 1996 to 2006, compiled by HBIC on behalf of the Hampshire Biodiversity Partnership, was published in October 2006. It reviewed the changes to Hampshire's habitats and species over the previous 10 years, and highlighted the issues and opportunities that lay ahead. It is still as relevant today.
