Assessment of ecosystem services (Bridgend CBC) Major contributing Availability and quality of features to ecosystem data goods and serviceSoil type (and geology of General, strategic level datathe area of land) readily availableHabitat type General, detailed level data availablePosition in the landscape General detailed level data availableWhat management is Some detail availablebeing implemented

    14. 14. Opportunities layers created Ecosystem Greatest potential for service service enhancement opportunitySoil Carbon Degraded peat based soils which are currently managed intensely or degraded bogs soils which are heavily drainedVegetation Carbon Areas within the woodland network which are not plantedWater Regulation Areas upstream of urban settlements on steep slopes where habitats could be restored to help regulate water (e.g. woodland / heathland and hedges)Pollination Areas where there is little existing evidence of flowering plantsRecreation Areas 300m from an open space or footpaths where there is a high population density [data is at different scale]Woodland network Previously wooded land near to existing woodlandsWetland network Flat areas adjacent to existing wetland or the rivers, on land with less nutrient burdenGrassland network Areas with less of a nutrient burden near existing grassland (eg older pasture which can easily revert)Heathland network Areas adjacent to existing heathlands that are not too heavily managed and therefore are likely to have an appropriate soil nutrient budget
