The Planning and Development Sector Group

The vision for the Planning and Development Sector Group is for "nature conservation to be fully incorporated in the new, more spatially oriented, land-use planning system. All towns and cities to maximise the contribution areas of natural green space make to biodiversity, thereby enhancing the quality of life of urban residents, workers and visitors. Gardens to be valued as biodiversity resources in their own right".

The group has the following objectives:

  • To ensure that planning decisions take full account of biodiversity and avoid negative outcomes;
  • To co-ordinate the management and enhancement of natural green spaces;
  • To improve access to natural green spaces;
  • To enhance people's awareness of wildlife in the urban area; and
  • To involve communities in biodiversity creation and management in their own areas.
