Council Consults on Local Biodiversity Action Plan

[Wednesday 12 September 2007]
Council Consults on Biodiversity

CRAVEN District Council is asking residents to feedback on its draft Local Biodiversity Action Plan (LBAP).

Biodiversity Action Plans are part of a global initiative which sets out proposed actions by a partnership of organisations aiming to halt and reduce wildlife losses.

Craven District Council commissioned North Yorkshire County Council to develop a Local Biodiversity Action Plan for the areas of Craven outside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The plan looks at ways in which we should protect our plants, animals and habitats. This includes identifying local species and habitats of importance; ensuring biodiversity conservation programmes are developed and maintained; raising awareness and understanding of local biodiversity conservation and providing a starting point for monitoring and evaluation.

Craven District Council's Portfolio Holder for Protecting and Enhancing the Environment, Stephen Place comments "The Council is firmly committed to maintaining Craven's unique environment now and for generations to come. The Local Biodiversity Action Plan will provide valuable evidence which will be used to inform future planning decisions, ensuring Craven's wildlife and its habitat are protected and conserved."

The Craven District Council LBAP and Action Programme can be viewed in the Planning Policy section of the Council's website www.cravendc.gov.uk

The draft plan is open to consultation until 28th September
