Biodiversity in Planning
A downloadable leaflet of the
advice provided by the Biodiversity in
Planning webpages is now available. The webpages and the
leaflet explains the requirements of biodiversity in the planning
process and what to do about them. It explains everything
from answering the biodiversity questions on the planning
application form through to ideas for mitigation. So if you
are considering submitting a planning application take a look!
We now have 9 wildlife walks
in the county so why not get out and be a wildlife
explorer with our handy leaflets. Take a look at
the Wildlife Walk page for some
ideas of where to start exploring.
These packs are designed to
help teachers nurture an understanding and an appreciation of our
natural environment whilst also following the national curriculum.
Take a look at the Biodiversity in
Education pages for further information.
