Geomorphological conservation and public policy in England : a geomorphological critique of English Nature's Natural Areas approach

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper reviews the geomorphological content of the 120 Natural Area Profiles, eight regional summaries and the relevant pages of the English Nature web site. It concludes that wildlife conservation, which dominates the profiles, has fully grasped the principles of conservation in the wider countryside, but geomorphological conservation has largely missed the opportunities provided. What is needed is a strengthening of geomorphological/Quaternary conservation with English Nature and its Local Area Teams, a more detailed approach to geomorphological description of the Natural Areas which recognizes landform evolution, landform character and sensititvity to change, and improved links between geomorphology and the land-use planning system
