The Habitat Restoration Project aimed to trial methods of creating new habitats and to ensure that the management of the countryside tooks greater account of its effects on wild plants and animals. The trial area comprised a series of ownership types, including: commercial leisure and mineral industries, farmers, the Forestry Commission, local authorities, Ministry of Defence, private estates and voluntary conservation bodies. Land uses include: agriculture, industrial after-use, leisure, military, multi-purpose forestry and private forestry. The Sherwood Forest Trust delivered the project with guidance from a steering group consisting of landowners, government agencies, voluntary organisations and local authorities. Strong existing partnerships already existed and several organisations were active in the trial area, including the Nottinghamshire Heathland Forum.
