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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the strategy or the consultation.
Read our recent biodiversity audit and toolkit for further background information.
- Biodiversity audit [PDF, 32.5MB] – the report from a 2020 survey of habitat conditions at our local nature reserves and larger open spaces
- Biodiversity toolkit [PDF, 9MB] – to help you get involved with enhancing your local parks for wildlife
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.
After considering all your responses we will present a report at the Environment and Community Scrutiny Committee meeting in January 2022, to seek approval for the final version of the strategy and action plan.
