Local Biodiversity Action Plans

The National Forest LBAP

The National Forest covers 200 square miles and crosses three county and six district boundaries.

 
 
The National Forest LBAP was written by the National Forest Company with the support of the Nature Conservation Working Group. It provides a framework for habitat safeguarding and creation in the National Forest area under the National Forest Tender Scheme and working in partnership with partner organisations. A first edition was produced in 1998 and a second edition was produced in 2004, as some of the targets had already been achieved.
