Welcome to GeoConservation Staffordshire

GeoConservation Staffordshire Designates and Monitors Local Sites
Local Geological / Geomorphological Sites (LoGS)
  • LoGS are areas of significant Earth Science importance that are considered worthy of protection other than those that are on statutorily protected land such as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs).
  • Most local planning authorities regard LoGS as equivalent to non-statutory wildlife sites and thus list them in their local plan
  • LoGS are selected according to their value for educational use, scientific importance, historical significance and/or aesthetic qualities
GeoConservation Staffordshire Organises Geoconservation Site Clearance Events
  • Site clearance re-exposes classic areas of Staffordshire Geology
GeoConservation Staffordshire Produces Geotrail Leaflets
GeoConservation Staffordshire also has responsibility for the
Staffordshire Geodiversity Action Plan (SGAP).
