The Countryside Team carries out conservation and habitat management works across approximately 500 hectares within the Lichfield District.
The funding to provide this management comes from grants awarded to the Countryside team from a number of different bodies. The Countryside team also works with local partners and volunteer groups to manage these sites and extend the network of habitats across the Lichfield district.
The Countryside team manages a number of designated and non-designated sites. These include Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs), Sites of Biological Importance (SBIs) and Local Nature Reserves (LNRs).
