MAGIC is a web-based interactive map which brings together information on key environmental schemes and designations into one place. It's a partnership project involving six government organisations who have responsibilities for rural policy-making and management, and although it has been designed to meet the needs of the partner organisations, the facility is available to anyone over the Internet.
There's no hiding the fact that there is an awful lot of information on 100 plus designations, classifications, grant scheme areas, habitats, etc. on MAGIC. BUT while you will need a checklist of the relevant ones to find out what you've got in your parish, you really don't need to know everything about all of them - unless you are really interested!
To make life nice and simple, in preparing this toolkit we have organised the things you need to look for into a number of groups. We've also been through the list of possibilities to make sure that there is at least a chance that they'll be on your patch - that means things like 'mountain habitats' have obviously been excluded!
What we are left with is a simple exercise in screening for things on a checklist. The steps are organised as below:
