Opportunity Mapping

The project mapping existing habitats across all of Cambridgshire and Peterborough and identifying opportunities to create new areas of habitat, has now been completed.
It has produced a detailed map of current habitats present across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, based on a range of data sources including OS Mastermap and Phase 1 habitat survey information.
This basemap has also been compared to a map of land-use and habitats from the 1930s, to show how much habitats have changed in that time.
The opportunity maps (for grassland, woodland, and wetland) identify locations where new habitats could be created which would provide the most ecological benefit in terms connecting existing habitat patches, whilst taking certain constraints into account.
