Restoring biodiversity to soft cliffs (ENRR398)

The availability of potential restoration sites is critical to the successful delivery of biodiversity targets. This report aimed to explore the potential for “freeing-up” protected clifflines. The objectives of this research were to: establish the potential for restoring biodiversity to soft cliff systems which have been subject to coastal defence or other engineering works; obtain an estimate of the scale on which restoration is likely to be possible; identify the main constraints and obstacles to undertaking such restoration; identify possible solutions to the problems associated with restoring biodiversity.
