This free online training course, delivered in partnership with Geoconservation UK, consists of three sessions that will give an overview of geoconservation in Scotland and the monitoring and designation of Local Geodiversity Sites.
Session 3: Introduction to site designation, Lesley Dunlop and Alison Tymon
How do sites get described and designated? An introduction to the site forms already in use in Scotland, and what types of information needs to be recorded to fully describe a new site. We will also consider the process that might be involved in getting sites designation and included in Local Development Plans, drawing on recent work in the Scottish Borders.
