Biodiversity Action Plan
Biodiversity is such a wonderful asset to those of us who live, work and visit the district; partly through its ability to help reduce the impacts of climate change but also for the range of benefits it provides. Sadly we are losing biodiversity at an alarming rate and the council is determined to do what it can to help protect, enhance and restore biodiversity. We have therefore produced this action plan which sets out our strategic approach going forward.
Now the plan has been written and launched the real work will start – the delivery of over 60 actions in 2021 alone by the council.
However we know there is more needed than we alone can deliver so we look forward with working with others over the next five years to make a real difference on the ground.
