Consultation on the future for wildlife

A consultation on the future for wildlife in Cheshire has just launched.
For details, please visit:

Working together for a Wilder Cheshire and Warrington | Cheshire West and Chester Council

In summary the Local Nature Recovery Strategy is intended to provide a blueprint to help wildlife thrive, improve our ecological network, but also target where investment in nature could help us adapt to climate change or improve the quality of the local environment, for people and the economy.

As many views as possible are sought about what matters and what a Local Nature Strategy of Cheshire and Warrington needs to achieve to help nature.

We would be very grateful if you could help us by promoting this opportunity so people in your Town/Parish can have their say.
There's an opportunity for individuals and organisations to also pledge action they are prepared to take, so we have a full picture of action being taken by everyone, so not limited to landowners, Local Authorities or NGOs like Cheshire Wildlife Trust.

We are also asking landowners to put areas forward where they could be interested in attracting investment in helping nature to recover, through a call for sites.

We can then put them in touch with organisations that can help them access government related grants or for support to develop biodiversity units (that could be sold to developers, when they need to invest in local opportunities to improve nature as part of Biodiversity Net Gain – the extra 10% that needs to be delivered for nature as part of major planning applications from 12th Feb and scheduled for minor applications from the start of April).

After this consultation there will be rounds of online and in person workshops across Cheshire and Warrington to confirm the priorities, targets and agree ways we can work together, across the Local Nature Partnership, with other organisations, landowners and individuals to support nature's recovery over the next 10 years (with known pressures and future opportunities in mind). Details on this will follow when available.
