Cumbria County wildlife sites officer LA8
Based at Cumbria Wildlife Trust, the county wildlife sites officer maintained the database of Local Wildlife Sites (sites of high value for their habitats and species). The post was funded by several of the county’s local authorities as it provided data for National Indicator 197 as well as providing a much-needed data curation service and a central contact for landowners who owned a County Wildlife Site where they could access help and advice to get Higher Level Stewardship funding for their land.
The funding for the post was cut by the local authorities as soon as the National Indicator set was withdrawn. The officer was made redundant in March 2011.
