The Natural Environment and Rural Communities (NERC) Act 2006 introduced a biodiversity duty on local authorities in England and Wales to conserve biodiversity. ‘Local Authority Services and Biodiversity’ provides a simple introduction to the duty; highlighting the benefits of and opportunities for protecting and enhancing the natural environment. The leaflet draws on existing good practice and will be a source of inspiration for local authorities to consider new and additional ways of integrating biodiversity conservation throughout their activities.
