Introduction to the guidance manual
24. Future development/refinement


24.1 Revision of guidance
It is anticipated that the guidance manual will be published and updated electronically on this website. The guidance to be published in 2003/4 will be revised and updated in the light of feedback from those using it, both statutory and non-statutory organisations.
24.2 Use outside statutory sites
Common standards monitoring guidance has not been developed for use on non statutory sites, or as part of a monitoring programme of the wider countryside. Nevertheless, similar programmes are being considered, as the concept of rapid assessment against an objective is equally valid in these scenarios.
