Comment: The comments from the previous assessment still apply but management measures needed to address these issues have been secured through an HLS agreement. The unit will be part of a larger grazing unit covering much of Upton Heath. The adverse condition relating to fire on this unit has been remedied through other mechanisms. The last fire on this unit was in 2002 and vegetation has recovered. Fires starts have reduced generally on urban heaths including Upton with measures introduced by the Urban Heaths Partnership probably at least partly responsible. However, there was a large fire in 2011 (not on this area) and works to improve fire access are proposed on other parts of Upton in response. Some reduction in fire risk may also occur through the introduction of grazing secured under an HLS agreement.
Number of adverse condition reasons: 3
