'Greenprints for Biodiversity'

'Greenprints for Biodiversity' are produced for District and Borough Councils. They provide a framework for the conservation of biodiversity within districts or boroughs by translating both the UK and Lowland Derbyshire Biodiversity Action Plans (BAPs) to a local level in order to make them more achievable by local councils, local groups and communities.

Their purpose is to identify the habitats and species which are present in the district or borough but which are declining or at risk on a national or county-wide basis. They also contain some recommendations for action and encourage individuals, groups, landowners, farmers and business to become involved in biodiversity conservation within their local area.

So far, Greenprints have been produced for Derby City, Chesterfield, Erewash, North East Derbyshire and Bolsover and work is already underway to implement them.

   Projects initiated as a result of the Greenprints include:
