Funding, subsidies and all that!
#13
“Ask the local Natural England office for the information (RDS is no longer in existance having been absorbed into Natural England).”

I had a go at this last year as a scam to get a free digital copy of the nmp. (I had asked a year before and told I had to pay £600 a tile to get the analogue digied). I got ping ponged between eh and the rds. Pastscape has got those defra numbers on it and I was unaware that a digital copy of the nmp existed as I had only ever seen an analogue one. So I was intrigued as to how they got a defra number on to a field. Eventually after a lot of FOI I got sent a cd with the vector data of selected field outlines on it (un-georefed). From it I havent worked out if allotted areas are from point source data that has been applied to the whole “field” or what the kind of tweaks/selection of data that were made.

At the time I was thinking that the landowners were going to have to prepare their own maps and that I might get some work from them preparing the archaeology potential but it turned out that the archaeology was stitched by the you know whos using this map. still seems to me that a bit of a field work could be used to suggest other unknown areas-again I think that it gives a bad impression about archaeology to the landowners big brother and all that as well as giving the impression that the white space on the map is barren- they also didnt have to raise a finger so are divorced from the subject- they have had the heritage management taken away from them...not likely then to look for potential

“the best way of protecting significant areas of ecological interesst would be to spend the money actually buying them”

ecological how did that get in here

best thing is give it to the immigrants as they have a tendency to get on in life and ignore all the cultural inhibitions that are inflicted on the natives by heritage managers
