Baseline vegetation validation (site checks) surveys, 2019 (NERR091)

Penwith Moors proposed Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) is located between St Just and St Ives in West Penwith, Cornwall; also referred to as the Land’s End peninsula. The proposed SSSI consists of multiple parcels of largely fragmented ‘rough ground’ over granite rocks with acid soils supporting lowland heathland, lowland acid grassland, mires, bracken and scrub. At the time of writing this SSSI designation is planned for Q1 (April-June) of reporting year 2020-21.
Some 2,440 ha were surveyed between 2012 and 2014 to establish a vegetation baseline for the proposed SSSI.
