SHDC - Ask the question - Should we enable rewilding on some of our land?

As a District Council, South Hams currently manages about 50 hectares of green space, which is cut every couple of weeks.

SHDC's target is to increase biodiversity on the land we manage by at least 10% by 2025. To help the Council achieve this goal, they are considering enabling rewilding on the areas of land that do not need to be kept short. Find out more.

What would change?
SHDC are proposing to change our land management practice on some of the land we manage to help restore and create more biodiverse sites and support the recovery of nature. It is likely this is achievable on about one third of the land we manage.

SHDC want to know what you think of this idea. Please complete the short survey to share your views by 5 August 2021.
