Biodiversity officer will strengthen local nature work

Created on 29/04/2021 @ 07:39
A biodiversity officer has been appointed by Powys County Council to work with communities such as Newtown.

The role is to fulfil Powys County Council’s commitment to the Local Nature Partnership (LNP) Cymru project.

The new Biodoversity Officer, Holly Dillon will be working with communities, businesses, public bodies and others to help conserve Powys’ wildlife for the future.

Leading and co-ordinating the Powys Nature Partnership, Holly will be creating the Powys Nature Recovery Action Plan, with the aim to enable a long-term, sustainable difference to nature recovery across Powys.

The Welsh Government has published its Nature Recovery Action Plan for Wales, which sets six key objectives to halt the decline in biodiversity. The Powys Nature Recovery Action Plan will take these objectives and set them in the context of local priorities.
“The County of Powys is well known for its rural nature and varied and beautiful landscapes,” explained Nigel Brinn, Powys County Council’s Corporate Director for Economy and Environment.

“From extensive areas of enclosed farmland, windswept moorlands, rugged mountains and a host of urban green spaces, Powys has a wide range of settings.

“Through our nature recovery action plan, we are aiming to engage with our residents, communities and businesses to determine the most appropriate practical action and strategic planning for a healthy, resilient, and nature-rich Wales. Our overall objective is to reconnect people with nature to ensure it is protected and nurtured now and in the future.”
