Nature Conservation Policies
 
The Borough contains a rich and diverse natural history and the protection of the most valuable sites for wildlife and geology can be achieved through designations. A series of policies set out the level of protection and the criteria for defining the following:
 
 
 
 
 
 
  • NC1   NATURE RESERVES AND SITES OF SPECIAL SCIENTIFIC INTEREST.
 
  • NC2   NEW NATURE RESERVES.
 
  • NC3   SITES OF IMPORTANCE FOR NATURE CONSERVATION.
 
  • NC4   SITES OF LOCAL IMPORTANCE FOR NATURE CONSERVATION.
 
  • NC5   WILDLIFE SPECIES. The requirement is set out for adequate measures of protection where identified by law or a Biodiversity Action Plan.
 
  • NC6   GEOLOGICAL RESOURCE. The need to follow the Council's Geology Code of Practice.
 
  • NC7   TEMPORARILY VACANT SITES AND NATURE CONSERVATION.
 
  • NC8   MATURE TREES.
 
  • NC9   URBAN FOREST. The Council will seek to encourage the appropriate retention and management of existing trees and woodland.
 
Draft Supplementary Planning Guidance on Nature Conservation has also been produced.
