Doncaster biodiversity action plan

Doncaster Biodiversity Action Partnership has produced a Local Biodiversity Action Plan (LBAP) for the borough.

Doncaster’s Local Biodiversity Action Plan (2007) outlines Doncaster’s wildlife conservation priorities and gives guidance on how we can protect and enhance biodiversity.

It details Doncaster’s priority habitats (those most threatened and requiring conservation action) and will inform, and eventually be replaced, by the new Local Nature Recovery Strategy.

It consists of a series of documents, available below, including:
