Our ecology team in Scotland are pleased to have secured approval for a Habitat Management Plan (HMP) for the Ayrshire Coast. Given the green light by North Ayrshire Council, the HMP will contribute to an important ‘nectar network’ for butterflies on the Ayrshire coast (including the rare small blue butterfly).
All prescriptions have been identified through consultation with Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Wildlife Trust and the highly experienced Greenkeepers who have been working in partnership towards the aims of the Irvine to Girvan Nectar Network (IGNN). Pollinators are in serious decline across the UK and this project aims to ‘establish connected nectar and pollen-rich sites along the Ayrshire coast, ensuring the long-term survival of pollinating insects in the area’.
The approved HMP will deliver:
We’re proud to have ensured the protection of biodiversity along this beautiful stretch of coastland for many years to come.
With over 25 years of global experience, we’re experts in overcoming complex ecological issues. This latest approval adds to a long list of successful HMP outcomes for our clients in Scotland, from Shetland to the Scottish Borders and beyond.
