Biodiversity Strategy

An Action Plan for South Ribble's Biodiversity

Over the course of the next year the Council will consult with staff and partners to put together a detailed Biodiversity Action Plan to sit with this Strategy.  This will include;

  • conducting desk based and field surveys to gather baseline data for biodiversity (species and habitats) in South Ribble
  • linking with Lancashire Local Nature Partnership, Lancashire Wildlife Trust and other relevant local and national bodies
  • informing and educating staff, landowners and residents about Invasive Non-Native Species
  • continuing with and introducing new biodiversity friendly management practices on South Ribble Borough Council land
  • developing the Council's response to Biodiversity Net Gain in the planning process
  • developing a communication plan for biodiversity including an element of Citizen Science to enable residents to be involved
  • ensuring where site management plans exist for our sites that they have an up to date section on biodiversity. 
  • identifying sites that would benefit from the development of new management plans
  • continuing to support Friends of Groups across our parks and open spaces
  • continuing to improve habitats for our pollinating species
