The creation of Church Marshes Country Park on former landfill lies at the heart of the scheme. The plan sets out prescriptions for a range of newly created habitats and recreational facilities, together with protected species management.
Preparation of Property Management Plans to standard National Trust format, for all countryside properties in Surrey, East and West Sussex. These include high profile protected landscapes such as Box Hill, Leith Hill, Ditchling Beacon, The Devil's Dyke and Birling Gap, as well as agricultural estates and important local sites including commonland. The plans set out Statements of Significance, SWOT analysis, management objectives and risk assessment for a proposed three year management strategy.
Preparation of a management plan for Reigate Heath, a lowland heath SSSI, LNR and well used local recreational resource. The plan incorporates detailed habitat, soil, historical, archaeological and land use surveys, with prescriptions for future management. The needs of different user groups and the potential conflicts in relation to the conservation and enhancement of the nature conservation value of the site are addressed. LMS have been retained to prepare subsequent five and ten year updates to the plan, the first of which has recently been through the initial review and consultation process.
A Landscape Management and Maintenance Plan (MMP) for the roof garden at the former Derry and Toms Department Store, commissioned when the replacement of many of the original trees and shrubs was required following repairs to the roof.
The gardens were constructed between 1936 and 1938 to a design by Ralph Hancock, and are considered to be a unique example of a roof garden of the period, and of national and international historic significance. They comprise three gardens; the Spanish, Tudor and English Woodland or Water Garden, built around a central building, and are listed Grade II on the English Heritage Parks and Gardens Register.
