Local Nature Recovery Strategies

 In Farming & land management, Nature & wellbeing, Nature & wildlife

Local Nature Recovery Strategies (LNRS) are currently being developed in Devon and Somerset. These will set out local priorities and opportunities for nature recovery and identify the locations most suitable for nature restoration. Defra is funding this work and has appointed authorities in each county to lead each strategy, tailored to its own unique environment and environmental challenges.

A wide range of people and organisations are being involved in the development of the Local Nature Recovery Strategies, including landowners and managers, government organisations, environmental charities, businesses, local groups and communities. Members of the Blackdown Hills National Landscape team have been contributing with local knowledge and experience to help develop these Strategies.
