What is the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead's Biodiversity Action Plan?


The Biodiversity Action Plan is the key pillar of the natural environment theme of our Environment and Climate Strategy, which seeks to protect and enhance the natural environment, green our towns and urban areas and increase awareness of biodiversity. Therefore, the overarching approach is based on those objectives. The overarching vision for our Biodiversity Action Plan is:

‘To reverse the decline in our natural environment and through better data, partnerships and direct action to increase biodiversity across the borough’

In support of this, we will work with the other Berkshire Authorities to support the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) ‘Wilder’ target to have 30% of land for nature by 2030. We will also support the national commitment that has been made to well-connected and effectively managed systems of Protected Areas which are protected to support the recovery of nature.

The purpose of the biodiversity action plan is to create a robust set of steps that helps us reverse the decline in our natural environment and through better data, partnerships and direct action increase biodiversity across the borough. Its important that we build on the many fantastic initiatives going on already being led by residents, community groups, landowners and business.
