Local Biodiversity Action Plans (LBAPs)

Local Biodiversity Action Plans (LBAPs) identify local priorities for biodiversity conservation and work to deliver agreed actions and targets for specific habitats and species.  LBAPs are delivered through wide local partnerships that involve wildlife organisations, local authorities, businesses and other interested parties.  There are six LBAPs within the North East, and these give full geographical coverage of the region.

Details of the North East LBAPs are given below.  Please click on a LBAP heading to be taken to the relevant website.
