Policy 6 – Safeguarding Places for Wildlife and Nature

Designated Areas: amend the concluding paragraph to read:

Functionally linked habitat will be protected and opportunities will be sought for the the enhancement of biodiversity through the creation… management of sites.’

New Development: strengthen the first paragraph to read:

            ‘… and existing blue green infrastructure as is agreed to be feasible…’

In the following paragraph, remove the word ‘potential’ because it is unnecessary.

Modify the first bullet point ‘Using suitable new planting…’ to read ‘Using suitable new native planting’.
