Local Nature Recovery Strategy development

We want to know your thoughts on the Local Nature Recovery Strategy.


This engagement runs from 20 March to 26 May 2024.

The Local Nature Recovery Strategy aims to make space for nature and bring long-term benefits for people and the environment. It is primarily aimed at landowners, farmers, local authorities, and environmental groups.

We want to work together with communities to deal with the problems and impacts of global warming and the loss of species and habitats, therefore we seek your input to help us agree the strategy and, based on this, to create a plan to deliver it.

We’re asking:

  • residents for their views about nature
  • environmental groups with a special interest for their ideas and concerns
  • those responsible for managing land for their views on what is achievable, that they could contribute to, and any help or support they need to deliver on those commitments, to help make more space for nature

All these views and ideas will contribute to the final strategy. It’s the only way to produce something that brings about the benefits we all agree for people and nature in Leicestershire, Leicester, and Rutland. After all, nature’s future is our future too.

We’re seeking views to influence the priorities in the strategy. We’re doing this through:
