The guidance is aimed at a range of people involved in writing and reviewing HMPs, for example, developers, ecological consultants and Planning Authorities. It provides advice on the broad principles and information that should be included in a HMP. The guidance does not however provide detailed management or monitoring prescriptions. This is because each site will have different environmental conditions and requirements. What works at one site might not be appropriate at another.
