Local Nature Partnership (LNP)
Warwickshire Coventry and Solihull Local Nature Partnership (LNP) was approved by Government in July 2012.
The LNP purposes are:
- Drive positive change in the local natural environment, taking a strategic view of the challenges and opportunities involved
- Contribute to achieving the Government’s national environmental objectives locally
- Become local champions influencing decision-making relating to the natural environment and its value to social and economic outcomes
The vision of the Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull Local Nature Partnership is:
- The natural and historic environment will be in a vibrant and healthy condition such that the economy, people and local communities derive significant benefits from the full range of goods and services that it provides and sustains.
- Key decision-makers and influencers will engage in and champion the need to actively integrate enhancement of the natural environment with economic growth.
- The loss of biodiversity in Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull will have been halted and reversed. Key habitats will have been restored, enhanced and connected at a landscape scale.
- Local people will value and feel connected to their local environment.
A Shadow Board of the LNP was established in October 2012, and the full Board started in January 2013. The Strategic Vision was approved in October 2013.
