Somerset Action Plans

Somerset's Biodiversity StrategyThe overall Somerset  Biodiversity Strategy, known as “Wild Somerset”, represents a long term blueprint for successful biodiversity conservation in Somerset. It proposes a vision and long term goals for biodiversity conservation locally and what will be done to achieve them. A new leaflet  summarising biodiversity in Somerset and how you can get involved can be downloaded here

These Action Plans apply across the County

District Biodiversity Action Plans

Each district in Somerset has its own BAP tailored to local action and a series of habitat and species action plans. All have been adopted by the district councils. To view the district council LBAPs click here

To access the district council habitat and species action plans, click on the name of the district: Sedgemoor, Taunton Deane, and West Somerset.  Links to the Mendip and South Somerset district habitat and species action plans can be accessed to the left and below. Exmoor National Park has its own Biodiversity Action Plan. 

Useful information on the national BAPs can be found on the UK BAP website. The Biodiversity Southwest website also hosts further useful links, such as South West Nature Map. Information on protected sites and BAP species can be found on the NBN Gateway and from SERC.
