Non-Statutory Sites Data

County Wildlife Sites (CWS)

County Wildlife Sites, (or Cumbria Local Wildlife Sites) are defined areas, identified and
selected locally for their nature conservation value based on important, distinctive and
threatened habitats and species within a national, regional and local context.

They are designated and reviewed at a county level by the Wildlife Selection Panel for the
Cumbria Local Sites Partnership, administered by Cumbria Wildlife Trust.

Special Roadside Verges (Verges)

Special Roadside Verges have been identified by Cumbria County Council as being of notable
importance for their habitat. These sites are not formally designated but will be considered by
the Cumbria Local Wildlife Sites Partnership against the Site Selection Guidelines. Some of
these sites are already SSSI’s or County Wildlife Sites.

Sites of Invertebrate Significance (SIS)

Sites of Invertebrate Significance have been identified by the Cumbria Biodiversity Data
Network (CBDN) as being of notable importance for invertebrates. These sites are not formally
designated but do broadly meet the criteria for selection as County Wildlife Sites. Many are
already within SSSI or County Wildlife Site boundaries.
