Biodiversity Duty Implementation Plan

Protecting biodiversity is everyone’s responsibility; local authorities have a key role to play in terms of delivery and by providing leadership to others.

The Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act (2004) places a statutory duty on every public body and office-holder to further the conservation of biodiversity; the Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Act (2011) requires the Council to report its compliance with this biodiversity duty.

South Lanarkshire Council have prepared this Biodiversity Duty Implementation Plan as a clear statement of our commitment to the ongoing protection of our natural environment and wildlife.

We have produced a Biodiversity Duty Report which demonstrates the activities and achievements of the Council during 2015, 2016 and 2017 that contribute to the conservation of biodiversity.
