We are pleased to host Adam Steward from Defra for a lunch time webinar on Local Nature Recovery Strategies (LNRS). Paul Brannen will Chair and there will be plenty of time for questions and discussions. Please circulate with your relevant officers and specialists.
He will cover the difference between the Nature Recovery Network and LNRS, LNRS objectives, process and pilots that are about to begin. This should help with planning and resourcing LNRS development at a local level.
As a note Defra expect LNPs to be involved in LNRS and as the process progress for Catchment Partnership involvement too.
Defra have chosen 5 pilot areas and Northumberland is one of them.
Unfortunately this is a council staff only meeting. We will be hosting wider stakeholder events in the months to come.
