Nature conservation strategy

Our nature conservation strategy helps us prepare for a predicted net gain in biodiversity in over the next two decades.

It covers the extent and quality of priority habitats and populations of priority species.

The strategy outlines plans to:

  • protect and enhance wildlife habitats, and where possible expand and link them
  • combine the best wildlife habitats into a wider ecological network that stretches beyond the city
  • give everyone who lives or works in Cambridge easy access to high-quality natural green spaces
  • promote greater awareness and understanding of biodiversity

The strategy was adopted in 2006.
