The Preferred Option for Biodiversity and Green Space.
The Core Strategy needs to recognise the environmental trends resulting from climate change and ensure provision for natural systems, habitats and species to adjust to this. Of particular relevance to the District are the effects of climate change on coastal habitats. .
A further policy needs to be established to ensure land management is in step with naturally functioning processes and systems and aligns with objectives for biodiversity conservation and other strategies.
Brownfield sites of particular conservational importance should be identified and given the appropriate level of protection.
