Land assessed & managed for biodiversity

Landholding assessed and managed for biodiversity
Landholding assessed and managed for biodiversity - The percentage of landholding we own that we have assessed and are undertaking the appropriate management actions. This links into Defra's England biodiversity strategy.

The target for AMP6 is to increase this from 60% in 2015-16 to 100% for sites larger than 5000m2, adding an additional 10% assessed each year.

If we miss the target, we will refund customers £4k per percentage point.

Historically we were reporting against landholdings that were larger than 0.05 hectares. This has been amended to landholdings greater than 0.5 hectares which corresponds with the Ofwat defintion. Our performance of 90% in 2017-18 has exceeded our target of 80%. We continue to forecast that we will achieve the target for each year of this price control period.
