Thank you to everyone who took part in this Consultation.   

The Kent Biodiversity Strategy will be finalised and put to the Kent Nature Partnership (KNP) Board for final approval in March 2020.  Following publication, the KNP will develop a implementation plan to sit alongside it with delivery of the targets broken down into smaller, shorter actions.

A copy of the Consultation Report is available to view in the Summary of Results section below.

Original Text

The Kent Biodiversity Strategy sets out the contribution the county of Kent, and the Kent Nature Partnership, can make to the Government’s ambition to leave our environment in a better state than we found it and the aspirations set out in its 25 Year Environment Plan “A Green Future”.

We want to hear your feedback on our proposed Biodiversity Strategy for the county, which includes goals and targets for the restoration and revival of Kent’s wildlife and objectives for how to better connect people with the natural environment and the benefits this brings.  Your views are important in helping us to ensure we have set a suitably ambitious but achievable Strategy that not only results in habitats that are thriving with wildlife and plants but inspires citizen engagement and connection.

The draft Strategy is available to download from the 'Documents' section below. Please let us know your thoughts by completing the online questionnaire.
