Cumbria Biodiversity Evidence Base

The Cumbria Biodiversity Evidence Base (CBEB) has been developed specifically for use within the planning system in Cumbria.

CBEB comprises data and advice to planners and public authorities on the species and habitats of Cumbria which should be considered while carrying out their functions. It will assist in producing Local Development Frameworks, help to inform the Development Control planning process and enable Local Authority planners to better fulfil their biodiversity duties. Others will also find the information in CBEB useful: from private companies planning economic developments, to those needing an overview of the county’s natural resources or to report on the priority or protected species found here.

@SocketedAxes @TullieHouse The Tullie Secret Garden has a juvenile or two "stranded" every year. It's parent will visit it and it will be OK. They are very noisy and the call is very poignant so it will tug at your heart strings!
