Draft Corporate Biodiversity Strategy

This consultation provides an opportunity for Oxford City Council to communicate its roles and responsibilities in relation to biodiversity. It will also help us to gauge the level of interest and concern about biodiversity in Oxford.

The Strategy is a corporate document which seeks to work as a practical tool for the Council to shape and encourage biodiversity work within the Council’s direct influence. It is not intended to be a Biodiversity Action Plan for the city as a whole.

This Strategy forms the starting point to provide a framework for further developing our action on biodiversity protection and enhancement in the future.

We are seeking your views on the approach we are taking in this Strategy and for your input into developing the Council’s role in biodiversity in the future.

How the results have been used.
