2.4.4 Natural Heritage/Biodiversity

The Draft Plan supports the provision of green infrastructure within the County through the policy and objectives in Chapter 9 Heritage and the Development Management Requirements for the provision of open space within new housing developments.  Biodiversity is vulnerable to climate change; however, it offers opportunities for both mitigation and adaptation.  Through its own projects and through the development management policies within the Plan the Council seeks to protect and enhance biodiversity.  The Council also has an objective to protect, manage and enhance the wetlands of the County.
