Preparatory actions, elaboration of management plans and of action plans

 ACTION A.1: Making preparatory inventories of priority Natura 2000 species and habitats of the project area 

 A status survey and inventory of the whole project area will be conducted which will comprise a botanical survey, zoological survey and the acquisition of aerial photographs of the area in reference to priority species and habitats. An exact determination of areas covered with invasive plant species and shrubs will be carried out and results will be presented on a vegetation cover map. Point mapping of marker species also will be compiled. Part of the zoological survey will comprise observations of birds breeding and feeding in the area with a direct focus on Falco cherrug population, and data on the population and dwellings of bat species and colonies will be acquired. 

The status survey and inventory are necessary for the elaboration of the project area management plan and the compilation of a Natura 2000 database. It is also important as the inventory will serve as a baseline reference while monitoring the impact of conservation actions, and it can be used as control to measure the results of the project’s successes 
Beneficiary responsible for implementation and purchase of necessary items (e.g. manual viewing binoculars, high precision GPS instrument, digital camera, bat detector) is Directorate of Balaton-felvidéki National Park.
 
ACTION A.2: Drafting of Natura 2000 site management plan for the project site 

Management plan will summarize important environmental parameters of the Várpalota military training site. The status of indicative species and habitats will be also reported. In the second portion of the management plan environmental threats (e.g. fires caused by military training activity) will be discussed and analyzed in detail, and management guidelines and recommended measures will be established for the long term conservation of natural values. 
The collaborative plan will facilitate the smooth implementation of planned conservation actions and during implementation controls and evaluation will be performed following a clear, consistent methodology. 
Beneficiary responsible for implementation – based on the collaboration and professional consensus of environmentalists and military staff – is Directorate of Balaton-felvidéki National Park.
 
ACTION A.3: Technical investigations and planning
 
Some concrete conservation actions involve building construction, building demolition, landscaping and foresting operations that require detailed technical surveillance and planning.
The following technical plans will be elaborated as precursors to conservation actions:
  • Landscape planning for the recultivation of illegal quarries and mining pits (ACTION C.4)
  • Technical surveillance of abandoned military facilities (bunkers, sentry towers) (ACTION C.4)
  • Technical planning for the development of fire brake zones (ACTION C.5)
  • Technical planning of emergency road construction (ACTION C.7)
  • Field surveillance necessary for fence building (ACTION C.11) 
Beneficiary responsible for implementation is Ministry of Defence Infrastructure Agency in collaboration with HM VERGA Forest Management Co.
