A number of case studies have been produced showcasing this work, to demonstrate what can be done across the country for rare and scarce species.

Please click on the links in the download sidebar to view case studies from:

  • BP CATS, Teesside. The BP CATS facility sits on land reclaimed from the Tees Estuary using river dredgings and blast furnace slag, which has developed into a mosaic of sparsely vegetated, calcareous habitats.
  • Canvey Wick SSSI, Canvey Island. Canvey Wick is a 93ha former oil refinery that was created in the 1970s by covering coastal grazing marsh with several metres of dredged sand, gravel and silt from the Thames. 
  • Roughcastle, Falkirk. Roughcastle is now a popular park which has been reclaimed by nature, but during the last 200 years the site has been used for mineral extraction, working fish oil and guano, and as a refuse tip.
  • Tata Steel, Scunthorpe. Tata Steel has undertaken iron ore extraction and steel processing for 150 years, with a mosaic of introduced substrates such as blast furnace slag, soil characteristics and successional stages.
  • UEL Beetle Bump, London. The UEL Beetle Bump transformed an unused 0.1ha patch of land into suitable habitat for the rare Streaked bombardier beetle (Brachinus sclopeta), creating attractive landscaping in a busy, modern university campus.
  • Untidy Industries, Basildon. Untidy Industries is a former vehicle wrecking yard with heavy metal contamination and a range of introduced substrates across the site.
  • Whittlesey Brick Pits, Peterborough. The Whittlesey Brick Pits complex has a long history of disturbance from clay extraction, producing a rich mosaic of dry and wet habitats, providing new inland opportunities for coastal species.
