Assistance with applying for funding

Nature Improvement Areas are a new name for the 'Ecological Restoration Zones' proposed by the Making Space for Nature Review. Although the characteristics of Nature Improvement Areas will vary across the country according to what is possible and what is needed, these will be places where:

  • opportunities to deliver ecological networks, both in terms of large area scale and valuable benefits accruing to wildlife and people, are particularly high;
  • a shared vision exists among a wide partnership including statutory and voluntary sectors;
  • significant enhancements of the network can be achieved over large areas by enlarging and enhancing existing wildlife sites, improving ecological connectivity and/or creating new sites;
  • the surrounding land use is better integrated with the management of the ecological network; wildlife habitats and underpinning ecosystem processes are restored, helping to mitigate climate change impacts; and
  • people are inspired by their enhanced experience of the outside world.

The Natural Environment White Paper commits Government to assist partnerships of local authorities, local communities and landowners, the private sector and conservation organisations to establish new Nature Improvement Areas, based on a local assessment of opportunities for restoring and connecting nature on a significant scale.
