Restoration strategy for raised bog

Ecological Restoration Solutions  completed a preliminary restoration strategy for possible restoration of a severely degraded raised bog at a development site located near Alsager, Cheshire.



Some degraded peat bogs are capable of natural regeneration in situations where the hydrology can be repaired and where, with appropriate rehabilitation management, there is a reasonable probability of re-establishing vegetation with peat-forming capability.
 
The main aim of restoration of raised bog/mire will be to reinstate an ecologically functioning peatland habitat that will benefit biodiversity, and create a functioning carbon sink.

A site assessment was undertaken during November 2018.
