Open Mosaic Habitats on Previously Developed Land (pdf full description)

Approximate Extent - Unknown

Distribution - Across the Peak District, but more frequent in the White Peak

Opportunities and Threats

Extent - Very limited. Generally small and associated with built-up areas.

Condition - Unknown, but interest likely to be inherently limited compared to other areas nationally.  Some amenity value but again probably limited given extent of other accessible “green space” in the area.

Connectivity - Probably very low.

Climate change risks - No significant risks identified.


Generally low inherent value compared with extent of high quality habitats mean this habitat is generally a low priority for action in the Peak District.
