Staveley Nature Reserve (SNR) occupies approximately 200 acres (80 ha) to the north of the Staveley parish, about 14% of its area. The site is owned and managed by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (YWT), who acquired part of the site in 2002 and the remainder in 2010. The site was previously used for gravel extraction with some of the land leased for farming.
The Parish Council was supportive of the acquisition and development of the site by the YWT following a resident survey. There were however concerns within the village about the effects of developing the site and in 2011 a working group was set up following a village meeting, to aid consultation with regards to the planning application for the nature reserve and also form the basis of a long-term link with the village.
The working group comprised residents and representatives of the YWT and has continued to meet on a regular basis since 2011. In March 2012 the working group became known as the Staveley Nature Reserve Liaison Group (SNR-LG). Although reporting to the Parish Council and having a Parish Council representative on the group, the SNR-LG is an independent body.
The following Terms of Reference were initially established for the SNR-LG:
