The government is consulting on its Nature Recovery Green Paper. Boroughs will also soon start to help prepare Local Nature Recovery Strategies.
Ahead of the global biodiversity summit (COP15) in spring 2022 the government is consulting on how to restore nature in the UK. Later in 2022, councils will also start drawing up Local Nature Recovery Strategies (LNRS) which will form the backbone of the government’s Nature Recovery Network (NRN) in England.
LNRS’s are required under the government’s new ‘landmark’ Environment
Act as part of its aim to reverse nature’s decline.
This timely meeting will help attendees get up to speed with the government’s Green Paper and will introduce what LNRS’s are, what they should cover and how to they can be involved before the process starts in earnest.
Because nature transcends borough boundaries, not least rivers and migratory species, QWAG is inviting Bromley, Greenwich and Lewisham councils to join the meeting.
This is an early chance to understand both the government’s wider plans and how local councils are preparing for LNRSs, how they will cooperate, how they will involve residents, and what extra support and expertise is needed to ensure LNRS are not just lines on maps.
