Natural England’s SSSI Designation

As expected, Natural England has designated parts of the Penwith moors as an SSSI following an at times stormy meeting in St. Ives on June 28th. The reasoning is tagged as ’30 by 30’: for the UK to make an international contribution to the protection of at least 30% of its land for nature by 2030. Officers explained at the meeting that this can then support nature recovery to spread beyond designation.
