Why isn't there a strategic policy on Biodiversity / Nature Recovery? NSC has declared an ecological emergency - the Local Plan therefore requires the sort of response required in an emergency, where nature recovery and the nature recovery network (West of England Nature Partnership) should be just as important as, for example, minerals. Natural capital is more vital for society and our local economy than mineral extraction for example!
