2025 target

25 ha creation; 100 ha enhancement and restoration

Current resource (Kent Habitat Survey 2012)

27 ha UK BAP priority habitat

Rationale

Kent supports 27 ha of BAP priority habitat quality grassland and a further 430 ha of species-rich neutral grassland, which meets Farm Environment Plan criteria. The Saving our Magnificent Meadows (Plantlife / MVCP) and Ashford Meadows (KWT) projects have delivered 11 ha of meadow creation and approximately 50 ha of meadow restoration and enhancement on sites such as Alex Farm Pastures SSSI and Moat Farm. In addition, there will be new opportunities for meadow creation or enhancement work through agri-environment schemes and projects delivered by KNP partners and others
