Residents of South Ribble are being given the opportunity to have their say on ambitious plans to conserve and enhance biodiversity in the Borough.


South Ribble Borough Council has published their draft Biodiversity Strategy and are encouraging everyone to have their say to help finalise the plans, as part of their work to tackle the climate emergency.

Councillor Mick Titherington, Deputy Leader of South Ribble Borough Council said: “The strategy has been developed to outline where we’re up to with regards to conservation in the Borough, along with ways in which we can promote and enhance biodiversity.

“It’s really important that as many people as possible get involved and provide their feedback on the strategy, so we can finalise it, and create a biodiversity action plan that can be rolled out in the Borough.”

The public consultation will be open until the end of June and can be completed on the South Ribble website
