Wigan Biodiversity / Ecology Study

The aims of the Biodiversity Study are to identify:

  • the UK biodiversity priority habitats and regionally important habitats that are critical to the identity of the borough;
  • sites that have the potential to support protected and biodiversity priority species;
  • the areas where development pressures could threaten the ecology of the borough;
  • where opportunities exist to invest in and enhance the landscape and biodiversity character; and
  • gaps in the available data resources and determine where future work could be targeted.
