creating an interconnected network of species-rich chalk grassland
Chalk grassland has become increasingly scarce throughout the county. This once-xtensive habitat now accounts for less than 0.13% of the county area, and over 90% is in the chalk belt of South Cambridgeshire.
This scheme aims to protect and enhance important chalk heath and grassland sites and to create an interconnected network of species-rich chalk grassland and other habitats south of Cambridge city. This will provide rich and diverse accessible ‘green infrastructure’ for the expanding population of Cambridge, within a government Growth Area.
