The report was written by Penny Anderson Associates Limited and sets out objectives to create a set of habitat condition monitoring objectives for Les Blanches Banques. These dunes were assessed using an adapted version of the JNCC sand dune condition monitoring scheme (2004) adapted for the Jersey situation in 2005. Condition objectives were suggested as part of this assessment, but were for consideration and discussion at that time.
The Department of the Environment now wishes to undertake a repeat monitoring exercise for the site to detect any change in the intervening years and has suggested six habitat condition objectives for the habitats listed below, which would cover the majority of the ecosystem on the dunes.
- embryonic dune
- white dune
- grey dune, including early and late successional grassland types
- scrub habitats
- mixed woodland
- rank grassland
