The Biodiversity Partnership carried out a range of projects to achieve targets set out in the Biodiversity Action Plans, and continously develops new projects to protect and enhance biodiversity.
A countywide Pond Restoration Project was developed over the last couple of years, and although we were not succesful in obtaining external funding, we have restored an initial set of ponds and hope to revisit this project in future. The following projects are being developed at the moment:
- Cambridgeshire Chalk Rivers and Peterborough Limestone Project
- Somersham-Chatteris Railway Corridor Enhancement Project
The partnership offers a grant to local projects that deliver biodiversity action, and more information can be found in the Funding Tips section. Lots of examples of funded projects are available in the Library section, where an analysis of the grant scheme is available under Partnership reports.
Amongst the publications which the partnership has produced are Biodiversity Checklists for planners, developers and householders, a Biodiversity Vision map, Orchard Survey reports, a Farmers’ Biodiversity Pack, a willow pollarding leaflet and a report “Our Natural Environment 2010”. They can be found in the Library section/Partnership reports and publications.
