  • The map is not particularly clear and there is information on what the BOA should be on the upcoming KENT BIODIVERSITY STRATEGY 2019 to 2044. Maybe some reference to this strategy should be made h ttp://www.kentnature.org.uk/kent-biodiversity-strategy2.html http://www.kentnature.org.uk/uploads/files/Opportunity_Area_Statement_-_Thanet_Cliffs Shor e _FINAL_.pdf
    • Targets:
    • Ensure the protection and enhancement of important cliff, intertidal and marine habitats, and monitor the extent and quality of intertidal and subtidal
    • Maintain and enhance the quality of existing littoral and sub-littoral chalk: • As far as possible, allow natural coastal processes to determine the geomorphology of the littoral and sub-littoral environment; and the carefully plan of any coastal defense work in order to maintain these naturally dynamic habitats through the Shoreline Management Plan. • Develop an action plan for managing the impact of non-native species of concern; • Implement appropriate management of Marine Protected Areas to allow marine habitats to
    • Restore, improve management of, and extend or create areas of cliff-top 4 Maintain and enhance saline lagoon habitats, ensuring no net loss. Biodiversity Opportunity Area Statement
