Condition assessments enable the appraisal of the ‘condition’ of features by assessment of key attributes against a set of habitat or species-specific targets. The methodologies were devised by the UK statutory conservation agencies, for the primary purpose of monitoring nationally designated sites.  However, we have applied the principles to measure the condition of other habitats and sites, including locally designated sites.
