Vision and Core Activities
Established in 1996, the Norfolk Biodiversity Partnership brings together local authorities, statutory agencies and voluntary groups in pursuit of a shared vision - the conservation, enhancement and restoration of the county's biological diversity.
To achieve this vision, the Partnership is involved in a wide-ranging programme of work. Amongst other activities, it:
- Prepares and implements action plans for some of the county's most threatened habitats and species;
- Manages a small Biodiversity Project Fund, which is used to support high priority recommendations contained in the action plans;
- Works closely with the Norfolk Biodiversity Information Service to improve the quality and availability of biodiversity information;
- Promotes the integration of biodiversity into strategies, plans and programmes, including Sustainable Community Strategies and Local Development Frameworks.
