Natural England commissioned surveys in 2014 and 2015 to evaluate Pixton Park's current value as an old parkland, for its wildlife habitats, invertebrates, and veteran trees. The results will allow evaluation for possible SSSI status. The objectives of these surveys are as follows: (1) To survey the site for its invertebrates (especially dead-wood invertebrates); (2) To collate all existing records from published and unpublished sources; (3) To evaluate the significance to the site for invertebrates against SSSI criteria and contribute to the overall evaluation of the site as a SSSI parkland with multiple interests; (4) Provide management recommendations to protect and enhance the invertebrate interest for the benefit of the landowner.
