Orkney’s Community Planning Environment Partnership is seeking public views on the latest version of its Orkney Local Biodiversity Action Plan.
The Plan will cover the period 2018-2022 and sets out what can be done locally to help protect habitats and species across four themes: Greenspace, Farmland, Peatland and the Marine Environment.
Membership of the Environmental Partnership’s Biodiversity Steering Group includes Orkney Islands Council, Scottish Natural Heritage, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, the Scottish Government Rural Payments and Inspections Directorate, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, SAC Consulting, the Orkney Field Club and Heriot Watt University’s International Centre for Island Technology.
The draft document is available at www.orkney.gov.uk and at OIC Customer Services in Kirkwall, at Kirkwall and Stromness Libraries and in the Mobile Library Van.
The consultation runs from 14 June until 26 July. A member of OIC’s Development and Marine Planning team will be available throughout this period to discuss the draft document, at Customer Services at the Council Offices in Kirkwall.
Comments on the Plan may be sent to the address below, by letter or email, until 26 July 2018.
