SNH Assessments of ITDMG

SNH carried out an assessment of ITDMG in 2014 against a benchmark of wide-ranging criteria. A re-assessment to measure progress was done in 2016. ITDMG have made significant progress over the two years, as can be seen from the two documents below which show the change from a mixture of green, amber and red boxes in 2014 to almost all green, a few amber and no red boxes in 2016. The assessment results can be downloaded below.

In March and April 2019, SNH carried out another re-assessment of all DMGs. They used the same criteria as before, but focussed on the delivery rather than planning aspect of Deer Management Plans. There was particular emphasis on four areas: 1) delivering designated sites to favourable condition; 2) addressing native woodland condition; 3) woodland expansion; and 4) carbon and peatland.
