Mineral Sites and Bird Strike Hazard and Risk:  Practice Guide for Mineral Development and Restoration within Aerodrome Safeguarding Areas

This Guide was developed by the MPA’s Biodiversity and Nature Conservation Group following a workshop it held in late 2013. The Guide aims to build on existing guidance and considers how minerals can be worked and sites restored to deliver biodiversity gains within aerodrome safeguarding areas while reducing and managing bird strike hazard  and risk  to levels acceptable to aerodrome operators and mineral planning authorities.

The case studies below illustrate aspects of good practice in delivery of biodiversity while mitigating birdstrike risk.  Further case studies are being developed and will be added in due course.

Case Study 1 - Gill Mill
Case Study 2 - Attenborough
Case Study 3 - East Leake Quarry
