The aims of the study were to assess the change in use and non-use values of the Pevensey Levels Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) arising from the implementation of the Wildlife Enhancement Scheme (WES). The results of this analysis were then used to estimate the additional benefits accruing to the general public from the WES designation in the Pevensey Levels SSSI:
- to assess whether such an evaluation could be achieved by contingent valuation methods (CVMs) and whether this methodology would provide robust, reliable and acceptable results which would be useful to policy makers;
- to link with researchers at University College London in exploring how respondents had formulated their responses to the CVM survey.
