Cambridge City Council

Biodiversity Strategy consultation

Consultation open from 23 July to 17 October 2021.

Our draft Biodiversity Strategy sets out and explains our key aspirations, themes and projects for the next nine years.

We welcome your comments to inform the final version and associated action plan, which will provide clarity and guidance on who does what, when and how. This will ensure that we provide adequate resources to achieve, monitor and sustain our commitment.

Have your say

Please read the draft strategy then complete our online survey to tell us what you think.

The consultation closes on Sunday 17 October. Contact us at if you have any questions about the strategy or the consultation.

Further information

Read our recent biodiversity audit and toolkit for further background information.

You can also read about the chalk streams in Cambridge, which provide habitats for many significant species, including brown trout and water vole.

The Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service have adopted a Biodiversity Supplementary Planning Document. It will help to ensure planning applications follow policy, standards and best practice. This will minimise impacts and maximise enhancement opportunities for biodiversity.

Next steps

The updated biodiversity strategy was adopted in 2022.
