Pollinators Locally. Developing a Local Pollinator Action Plan or Strategy

This message is coming from scientists, wildlife organisations and Government. The National Pollinator Strategy for England, the Action Plan for Pollinators in Wales, the Scottish Pollinator Strategy and the All Ireland Pollinator Action Plan all highlight serious declines in our native pollinators and make a call for action from everyone to help conserve these species. Local authorities across the country are being asked to use their regulatory powers and other functions to deliver, promote and enthuse others to participate in work which will benefit pollinators. Local authorities are well placed to make a significant contribution directly through land management and development control, whilst also providing leadership on this issue across their local communities.
