  • Improving the quality of the district’s ecological habitats (as well as delivering new habitat).

  • The need to prevent the spread of invasive species.

This has been one of our first opportunities to influence Local Planning in the Lowland Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire area and we welcome Bolsover District Council’s incorporation of our feedback into the SA Scoping Report. We look forward to ongoing engagement with them as the Local Plan develops.
