We are currently identifying how, as an organisation with a strategic remit, we can most effectively support growth so that it is of the right kind, in the right place and at the right scale with benefits for both business and the environment.
We have started by mapping the natural capital we have in the Lowland Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire area so we have baseline data from which to work.
We are discussing and agreeing our strategy with regard to:
- Good access to nature for all.
- Sustainable development and land management.
- Healthy wildlife populations.
- Clean, green business.
- Resilient natural defences and
- Education and skills.
We are identifying landscape scale areas to focus some aspects of our work on and talking to neighbouring LNPs to identify possible joint priorities.
We are talking to the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and other partners to identify potential funding opportunities.
We are identifying examples of good practice to share with interested parties.
