Biodiversity community toolkit

Last Updated: 3 April 2024

We are committed to protecting and enhancing biodiversity and nature. Our biodiversity policy encourages habitat creation and restoration, and helps create green corridors and greenspace networks. In 2019, we declared a Climate Emergency, and protecting and enhancing biodiversity can help us adapt to climate change.

Our parks and open spaces are crucial to enhancing biodiversity across the district and we have endeavoured to support the increasing numbers of groups in their work. However, we recognise that guidance is needed.

The below document describes the ways that community groups can work on our land, how we can support you to do so and sets out our priorities of biodiversity features.
