Countryside Stewardship draft target statements - stakeholder comment form Nov 2014

Natural England, Somerset, Avon and Wiltshire Area Team

Seeking stakeholder comment on the draft Countryside Stewardship target statements


This form sets out how stakeholders can help ensure the NELMS target statements are as accurate and useful as possible. Target statements will direct how NELMS resources can best be used across England. There are target statements associated with each of the 159 National Character Areas (NCAs) in England – to see how NCAs relate to county boundaries and your local area, see map on last page or go to the interactive maps at

The draft statements have been produced collaboratively by Natural England, Environment Agency, Forestry Commission and English Heritage. Natural England is leading on engagement with stakeholders and this particular invitation to contribute is from Natural England’s Somerset, Avon and Wiltshire Area Team who are responsible for the following NELMS statements (see map of NCAs and county boundaries on last page):
117 Avon Vales

118 Bristol Avon Valleys and Ridges

132 Salisbury Plain and West Wiltshire Downs

133 Blackmoor Vale and Vale of Wardour

140 Yeovil Scarplands

141 Mendip Hills

142 Somerset Levels and Moors

143 Mid Somerset Hills

144 Quantock Hills

146 Vale of Taunton and Quantock Fringes

Natural England is making the above draft statements available to stakeholders for comment in two ways:

  1. Some stakeholders will be emailed the drafts directly.

  2. Anyone can download the drafts off the websites of Local Nature Partnerships working with Natural England’s Somerset, Avon and Wiltshire Area Team:

  • West of England Nature Partnership LNP

  • Link2Nature LNP

  • Somerset LNP

Each statement follows a national template with generic wording and a consistent structure – we are not seeking comments on this template. Drawing on national data, information about the local area has been inserted into the national template to produce a statement specific to each NCA and this information is red in the draft statements – we are seeking comments on this information with help from stakeholders, we need to ensure the local information is accurate and representative of the key features and issues within the NCA.

Please provide reasoning behind your comments. Your explanations will allow us to assess whether the discrepancy you have identified is due to errors/gaps in our data or difference in opinion about the significance/relevance of the issue/feature. Countryside Stewardship is a National scheme with fixed resources so draft statements cannot accommodate features and issues that are of minor importance or irrelevant to the scheme. If you are unsure about what is of key importance or relevance, please make a comment so that we can make a judgement on your behalf.


Please return completed forms by email to Please use a separate form for each draft statement you are commenting on. The deadline for comments is 23rd November 2014.


Thank you for your interest and assistance.

Is the information listed under the Priority habitats and Priority Species section of the targeting statement an accurate reflection of the key habitats and species in the NCA?


  • There are two lists for habitats – one identifying key opportunities for maintaining existing areas and another list for key opportunities to restore habitats. If your understanding of what is a key habitat for maintenance or restoration differs to the draft lists, please give your reasoning in the comment box.

  • The species list relates to Section 41 species that are present in the NCA and require ‘bespoke’ management. A list of Section 41 species requiring bespoke management is at the end of this form as well as an explanation of bespoke management. If you have data regarding the presence of a S41 bespoke species missing from the list, please note it here. If you are questioning the presence of a species in the NCA, please explain here.
