Biodiversity Duty Implementation Plan

In 2004 the Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act placed a duty on “every public body and office-holder to further the conservation of biodiversity”.

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

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.
