    In this report, a vision for ecological networks in Cheshire County is developed and presented. This vision is developed in close interaction with the County Council. The vision contains a proposal for sound ecological networks of meres and mosses, heathland, rivers, woodland and grassland. A standardised method is presented and applied, integrating the following information in the scenario: demands for different ambition levels for sound ecological networks; abiotic potencies for ecosystems in the County; the opinion of key stakeholders; future developments in infrastructure and urban planning; opportunities for nature development. According to future developments and information, the resulting scenario can be adjusted easily with the information provided.
