Site of metropolitan importance
A site of metropolitan importance is a site of importance for nature conservation within London at a London-wide level. They contain examples of London’s habitats, may have rare species, or have significance in built-up areas.
Sites of importance for nature conservation are usually selected within a local authority area. This process is often managed by the local wildlife trust together with representatives of the local authority and other local wildlife conservation groups. They support both locally and nationally-threatened wildlife, and many sites contain habitats and species that are priorities under the county or UK biodiversity action plans.
