Biodiversity South West Forum

On 15th December 2009 Biodiversity South West came together with its partners to discuss the Delivery Plan for Biodiversity in the SW. The event was a chance to talk about progress to date and view some of the early evidence being used to help shape the delivery plan. It was also a chance for LBAPs and delivery organisations to come together to discuss their submissions to the plan and lessons learnt to help shape and refine both the submissions and the plan itself. Notes from the previous meeting held in June 2009 and earlier briefing notes explain a bit more about what the Delivery Plan is and timetable for drafting. Outputs from the meeting are on this page. As progress is made in writing the plan it will be reported via this website.
