  Northern Ireland Local Biodiversity Action Plans (LBAPs)  

Our Nature with Aggregates seeks to assist the industry in optimising biodiversity and geodiversity opportunities on aggregates sites in Northern Ireland.

QPANI endeavers to assist local biodiversity targets and actions by working in partnership with our biodiversity colleagues with in Government, Local Authorities and Conservation Organisations.

Local Biodiversity Action Plans (LBAPs) have been developed throughout the UK (UKBAP website) which aim to conserve biodiversity through local partnerships, taking into account both national and local priorities. LBAPs involve local people and local organisations through the practical delivery of biodiversity conservation.

In Northern Ireland, Local Biodiversity Action Plans are currently being written for several Coucnil and Landscape areas, through the employment of local Biodiversity Officers. The emphasis is on the local aspect; targeting habitats and species that are important or most threatened within that area. Find out more about local biodiversity priorities in your area by viewing the published document or contacting the Biodiversity Officer. QPANI's Biodiversity Officer will assist member companies in developing local partnerships and projects.
