Objectives : The aim of the MoorLIFE2020 project is to conserve and protect the priority active blanket bog habitat within the South Pennine Moors
Natura 2000 site and the ecosystem services it provides.
The project is taking place on the South Pennine Moors
special area of conservation (SAC) included in the Natura 2000 network.
How much greenbelt there is on the South Pennine Moors
is totally irrelevant.
As well as Calder Valley the team recovers lost or injured people from Airedale, North and South Bradford and the North West Leeds police divisions but also the South Pennine moors
around Calderdale, Keighley, Baildon, Otley and Ilkley.
Large areas have been designated as green belt and an extensive area in the west is covered by the Special Protection Area (SPA) and Special Area of Conservation (SAC) of the South Pennine Moors
, which is protected under European legislation.
The proposed turbines would conflict with the rugged grandeur and expansive views of the South Pennine Moors
landscape character area and the South Pennines Heritage Area.
