From the Heritage Council:

‘The final version of the Heritage Council’s  Best Practice Guidance for Habitat Survey and Mapping is now available on our website at www.heritagecouncil.ie

This publication presents current best practice guidance for survey and mapping of habitats in the Republic of Ireland, and is aimed primarily at those who conduct or commission habitat surveys. Its objective is to standardise and improve habitat survey and mapping methods in order to achieve compatability among surveys and surveyors, and to ensure the quality and consistency of the maps and data produced.

The Heritage Council would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the preparation of the document, the authors, the Steering Group members from NPWS and Cork County Council, the editor, and all those who responded to the consultation process and participated in the peer review.

Please note that this publication is only available as a pdf that can be downloaded from our website, or read online; hard copies are not being made available, due to resource constraints.’
